Partick Housing Association’s Broomhill Gate shortlisted for award

Broomhill Gate_1Partick Housing Association’s new build development at Broomhill Gate has been shortlisted in the Affordable Housing Development of the Year category for the prestigious Herald Property Awards 2017.

The mixed development on a brownfield site, designed by MAST Architects, consists of 14 three-bedroom townhouses for social rent, 18 two-bedroom flats for mid-market rent and a 14 person supported accommodation facility managed by Crossreach.

All the properties promote long term sustainability, by maximising solar gain, including high levels of sound insulation, and minimising carbon dioxide emissions and energy loss.

The specification for the development included selecting local or Scottish products and materials wherever possible to reduce transportation and used recycled or recycleable material where appropriate.

Stewart MacKenzie, Partick Housing Association chief executive, said: “The high standard of the homes we have delivered at Broomhill Gate shows our commitment to providing good quality, energy efficient, affordable homes.

“We are pleased to have been shortlisted for an award and acknowledge the successful partnership with MAST Architects which has delivered these quality homes and support from Glasgow City Council and other partners.”
