An innovative housing project, which features Dynamic Insulation as part of its aim to trial new construction technologies, has been recognised by three separate awards bodies.
The Housing Innovation Showcase in Dunfermline, Fife, has been shortlisted in both the Fife Partnership Excellence Awards 2012 and in the Best Small Housing Development of the Year at the Scottish Homes 2012 Awards.
And it’s already earned a Scottish Green Apple award, an initiative which seeks to reward and promote the most innovative environmental practices used by companies, councils and communities in Scotland.
The £3.3 million 27 home showcase is a joint venture between Kingdom Housing Association and Fife Council and is monitoring the effectiveness of a variety of construction systems to establish which are best for cutting costs and improving standards.
By doing so, it’s hoping to ascertain which of the technologies would be most applicable for larger affordable housing programmes in the future.
Some of Britain’s leading construction companies were selected for the scheme, including Lomond Homes, whose two properties at plots 22 and 23 utilise Dynamic Insulation as part of their Lomond Breathing Wall System.
