Ogilvie Construction completes build of energy efficient Dyce flats

WORK has been completed on the construction of new energy efficient flats at Wellhead Road in Dyce.

The Aberdeen City Council project forms part of a wider programme to deliver 2,000 new council homes across the constituency.

Ogilvie Construction led the build of the 160 flats at Wellheads Road, with the properties being designed to have a high level of energy efficiency. They will be heated by the Aberdeen Heat and Power plant, which utilises waste heat from the production of electricity to heat the homes.

Further to this is the council promise of low maintenance external amenity spaces, support for active travel, as well as a playground and green space.

The 83 and 77 new flats at the site are phases two and three, with there now being 283 properties at Wellheads Road. The final phase is set to start shortly.

Aberdeen City Council city growth and resources convener, councillor Ryan Houghton, said, “These new homes will not only be great places to live in but are designed to help meet the greatest demand for our properties including for families, single people, and housing for varying needs.

“The new council houses in the nine sites across the city will provide not only energy efficient buildings but they are also low maintenance and built to an extremely high quality.”
