The largest modular home development being built in Scotland is well on its way to completion, with the company behind the unique project saying residents will be able to move in later this year.

The 63-home £9.8million project is being delivered by Riverside Scotland (part of The Riverside Group) and Connect Modular, part of Cumnock company, The Wee House Group and is expected to be fully completed by Autumn 2022.

Councillor Philip Saxton, Housing and Community Wellbeing Portfolio Holder for South Ayrshire Council visited the Dundonald development recently to see how it was coming along.

He said: “I’m delighted to see this important development of 63-homes well underway. This is the first affordable housing in South Ayrshire constructed using a modular build and I’m delighted to see this innovative approach that will deliver good quality homes for our tenants.

“Dundonald has lacked any development of social housing for decades and this is an important contribution to meeting housing needs not only in Dundonald but within South Ayrshire more widely. I look forward to completion and welcoming tenants into their new homes.”

The development will see a blend of house types, including one bedroom flats, three bedroom houses and two bedroom amenity bungalows.

Riverside Scotland also confirmed recently that seven of the 63 homes are being allocated specifically to veteran households.

Connect Modular, specialists in modular construction design and fabricate all houses in their Ayrshire factory. Houses are 90 per cent complete when they depart the factory with kitchens, bathrooms, plumbing and electrics installed, facilitating a significantly shorter build programme and earlier occupancy.
