Mansell has been awarded a £14m project to build 100 new build affordable dwellings at Muirpark Wynd, Tranent for East Lothian Council.
The development will comprise 84 houses and 16 flats providing a mix of homes ranging from two-bedroom flats to three-bedroom houses. It will also include two two-bedroom wheelchair accessible homes.
The project is set to realise a 15% reduction in CO2 emissions which will be achieved by utilising a number of environmental features including: solar panels, low U-value windows, high efficiency boilers, zone controlled heating systems and high specification insulation to floors, walls and roofs.
This is East Lothian Council’s largest single development of affordable housing in the last 25 years.
Work will start on site this month and will complete in summer 2012.
