Projects / Mosspark Boulevard, Glasgow
Southside Housing Association
Mosspark Boulevard affordable housing development comprises of 35 homes for social rent and associated amenity space on the former United Reformed Church Site in Glasgow.
The new homes designed for this scheme will provide high quality living as set out in the Design Schedule for Affordable Housing in Glasgow. The mix includes 1, 2 and 3 bed flats, including 10% adaptable standard accommodation. The materiality of the proposed residential block responds to the local architectural character of the area.
It is hoped that the new use, proposed for the site, presents a valuable addition to the surrounding community. The wider social benefits further cemented by the housing offer, which seeks to contribute to the significant demands for such accommodation that presently exists within the area and the wider city.
Innovations & added value
The project will follow Option 1 Gold Hybrid standard of sustainability which requires Gold Level for Aspect 1 of Section 7 and Silver Active Level for Aspects 2 to 8. The development also provides minimum of 20% CO2 Emission abatement via Low and Zero Carbon Technology. The residential dwellings utilise Mechanical ventilation incorporating heat recovery (MVHR). Heat distribution is sourced from a communal ASHP system via an ambient loop and will provide heat to radiators and domestic hot water. This combined approach is an efficient method of reducing energy consumption within a dwelling and helps mitigate any overheating issues by increasing the number of background air changes. No mechanical cooling provision will be installed as part of the residential scheme. The apartments will also feature openable windows, allowing full control for their occupants.
