Progress continues on Aberdeen City Council’s social housing scheme as work begins on second site; Wellheads Road.

Faithful+Gould, part of the SNC-Lavalin Group, is delighted works are well progressed for the second project; a £30 million new housing development, located at Wellheads Road in Dyce which follows the first contract award of Summerhill.

The development at Wellheads Road supports the Council’s ambitious Housing Programme, the largest local authority housebuilding programme in Aberdeen in more than 50 years, which aims to bring 2,000 council homes for the region.  The Wellheads site will comprise a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom units across four buildings. Each of the five storey buildings will include green open spaces, outdoor seating and children’s play area.

Andrew Low, Faithful+Gould’s Regional Director, said: “We are thrilled to be supporting Aberdeen City Council with the delivery of this significant project, providing high quality, energy efficient homes that will make a real difference to people’s lives in Aberdeen.”

To support the Council’s drive to reduce fuel poverty across the city, the inclusion of a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system will help to minimise carbon footprint in line with the Strategic Housing Investment Plan.

Faithful+Gould is providing multiple service lines for the overall Housing Programme; Wellheads is the first project in the programme where Project Monitoring and Quality Assurance services are being delivered, driving quality standards across the programme.

Last summer, similar work began on the Summerhill site to create 369 high quality homes; leading the way for additional sites at Tillydrone, Kincorth, Craighill and Greenferns.
