Edinburgh Home Demonstrator
A model for design, procurement and delivery of new affordable net zero homes
The programme is developing and testing a new business model for the delivery of new affordable net zero homes.
Based on collaborative procurement, whole-life costings, pipeline coordination and greater use of modern methods of construction (MMC), the programme aims to transform the productivity and performance of affordable housing and to enable the move towards homes built to net zero carbon standards.
The Granton project is underway in Edinburgh, which will deliver approximately 75 homes using zero emissions heating and modern methods of construction (MMC). The project will validate the net zero carbon approach through post occupancy monitoring and pilot a community carbon strategy.
