Modular Flatted Development, Arbroath
ACA’s second commission with McCallan Homes has involved designing the development of twelve 2-bedroom flats in Arbroath, Scotland.
The brownfield site was a former pub and hotel, which had fallen into disrepair. The local planning team supported the proposed regeneration of the site with the contemporary scheme.
As McCallan Homes are experts in Constructing Modular Homes, the flats were organised in a way which maximised construction efficiencies, for the off-site construction method.
The modular flatted development has the main structure, designed to utilise the energy and time efficiencies gained by using the SIPS panel system.
Each flat was divided into (on average) 4 modules. These were entirely fabricated in the factory and transported to the site. This included the fitting of flooring, electrics and plumbing (including bathrooms).
The quality and accuracy of work completed in the factory meant that the on-site works would be limited, and reduced on-site costs and time significantly.
The existing buildings on site were demolished in March 2015, with the first modules constructed and tested in early July 2016. The development was completed by the end of 2016.
