Largest social modular housing development
Vista Panels worked on a £9.8 million development in South Ayrshire, Scotland’s largest social modular housing development to date, helping to deliver new affordable housing in the area.
Working with Riverside Scotland, the UK’s largest social housing landlord, and Connect Modular, part of The Wee House Group, Vista supplied its GRP composite door for all of the factory built homes.
“We are thrilled to see our door used in this growing sector, and I feel it will really help tackle both the housing crisis and the environmental one,” Ian Smith, Vista’s business development and marketing manager, said.
The investment – which includes Scottish Government funding of £4.7 million – begins with the delivery of 63 brand new affordable homes, the first phase of a 250-strong property development located at the site.
The first affordable homes will be made available to Irvine Housing Association customers before the end of the year.
“The UK’s housing crisis and reducing our carbon footprint are both very important issues to us, and we’re therefore very excited to be partnering with companies that share the same values,” Ian said.
