Aberdeen City Council remain focused on their Strategic Housing Investment Plan

Faithful+Gould, as Aberdeen City Council’s trusted adviser for the SHIP programme, continue to progress various programme streams within the confines created by the current unprecedented circumstances.

Despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Aberdeen City Council remain focused on their Strategic Housing Investment Plan.

These streams include four council owned sites that will see early design work progressed to allow the projects to commence on site as early as possible to assist in delivering the SHIP vision.

In addition, proposals have been invited from the Developer Market to bring opportunities for Developer led schemes that will benefit both the overall SHIP target and provide certainty for Developers in these uncertain times.

Faithful+Gould were appointed Programme, Project and Cost Managers for the scheme, with Atkins providing Quality Assurance services. The Council’s Strategic Housing Investment Plan will deliver circa 2000 sustainable homes for the people of Aberdeen on sites including Summerhill, Craighill, Kincorth, Greenferns, Greenferns Landward and Tillydrone. These projects will provide quality and sustainable homes that fulfil the diverse needs of the community all people can prosper.

The work on Aberdeen City Council’s Strategic Housing Investment Plan demonstrates that there remains a requirement and need to meet housing targets across Scotland and the United Kingdom. All parties are working collaboratively and digitally to progress towards achieving their goals and successfully delivering in the face of adversity.
