48 homes of the future in Kilmarnock

On the former site of Silverwood Primary School in Kilmarnock 48 new homes will be built by CCG for East Ayrshire Council as part of the Kennedy Drive development.


Inspired by MAST Architects the development of 48 homes will comprise a range of two, three, four and five bed dwellings with 1 eight-bed dwelling added to the mix. The range of options will cater for a variety of needs including general housing needs, wheelchair users and older ambulant disabled residents.


The homes have been carefully considered to meet not just general housing needs but also the demand for community care requirements with specialist adaptations to support residents with more complex requirements.


It's the second net zero project East Ayrshire Council has undertaken with full consideration being given to low carbon technologies. The technology stack for these homes of the future will include air source heat pumps, use of Scottish products and materials to reduce transport energy and solar panels covering all roof spaces.


The 48 affordable new homes were supported by £5.147 million Scottish Government funding supporting its commitment to deliver 110,000 affordable homes across Scotland by 2032. At least 70% of these will be for social rent and 10% in remote, rural and island communities.


This development was originally procured through the former NH2 framework. This has been replaced by NH3. The NH3 framework has been developed to support public sector organisations in delivering offsite development of new residential buildings using modern methods of construction (MMC).
