Scotland’s Housing Expo - Plot 8


A RIAS sponsored competition for the creation of a sustainable community, Plot 8 is an apartment building of six dwellings. In order to satisfy criteria of the masterplan were to be “Robust”, “Urban”, “Standalone” and “Landmark” building, harnessing “Woodfuel and Micro-renewable” technologies to achieve the BRE Ecohomes “Excellent” rating.


The apartments exceed Technical Standards and produced an Energy Performance Certificate with an “A” rating for Environmental Impact. They were also awarded ‘Small Affordable Housing Development of the Year’ in the Scottish Home Awards 2011.


"Keppie was our first choice because of their ability to interpret our needs and their willingness to take part in innovative new approaches to construction, coupled with a very dynamic team who are totally client focused and take ownership of each area of the project from inception to completion".
