Arc-Tech commence works on East Ayrshire assisted living development
Glasgow-based Arc-Tech (Scotland) Ltd has commenced the installation of mechanical and electrical services on a new assisted living development in East Ayrshire.
Located at Cessnock Road, Hurlford, the 14-unit development is being delivered on behalf of CCG (Scotland) Ltd as developer partner for East Ayrshire Council and is one of several housing developments being delivered as part of the authority’s Strategic Housing Investment Plan that will see nearly 900 homes delivered by 2023.
The homes will be bright, energy efficient and will have specially designed features including wet rooms and rise and fall kitchen units in wheelchair accessible ground floor flats. All of the flats will be served from an internal street, which will face onto a residents’ private garden.
John Gallacher, managing director of Arc-Tech, said: “Arc-Tech is delighted to be supporting the delivery of affordable housing supply in East Ayrshire. The Council promotes supporting residents to live safely and independently in the community so specialist housing developments such as the model of care under development at Cessnock Road are very important in supporting this agenda.
“Our site team will be leading the installation of the communal heating system, sprinkler systems, solar PV and street lighting and are set to be on site for an eight-week duration assisting the Main Contractor throughout this process.”
Arc-Tech has previously delivered a solar PV contract for East Ayrshire Council with Barbieston Road. Located in Dalrymple, the 11-unit development was completed in summer 2018 and was recently awarded the Scottish Procurement Alliance (SPA) ‘Best Housing’ Award.
