We are working with the Edinburgh Home Demonstrator, a programme developing a new model for the delivery of affordable housing, to facilitate the first pilot project.

This work is in collaboration with

  • Scottish Government
  • Scottish Futures Trust
  • Off-Site Solutions Scotland
  • Edinburgh Napier University
  • University of Edinburgh
  • BE-ST

The site we are using for the pilot project sits within the heart of Granton Waterfront, at the rear of the station building on Waterfront Broadway. The site will deliver 75 social and mid-market rent homes as well as commercial space.

Planning approval for the provision of 75 homes and four commercial units was granted in March 2022 and the construction of the project started in April 2022. Once the homes are completed and occupied, they will also be monitored to measure the effectiveness of the energy performance and help inform future housing projects.
