Work has finished at the last phase of new-build council houses in Aberdeen

The Wellheads homes are designed to have a high level of energy efficiency throughout and low maintenance external amenity spaces as well as support more walking, cycling and wheeling through Active Travel. The site includes a playground, plenty of green outdoor space, and cycle storage. These homes are heated by Aberdeen Heat and Power combined heat and power plant which utilises waste heat from the production of electricity to heat the homes.

The 283 flats at Wellheads in Dyce were built in four phases and are a mixture of 1 to 8 person flats for varying needs.

Spokesperson Councillor Sandra Macdonald said: “It is fantastic that all 283 Aberdeen City Council housing council flats at Wellheads are now finished and we hope that residents will really enjoy living in their new homes.

“These new homes will not only be great places to live in but have been designed to help meet the greatest demand for properties for families, single people, and housing for varying needs.

Donald MacDonald, Managing Director, Ogilvie Construction, said: “We are proud to have built a high-quality mix of new homes that incorporate innovative energy efficient design and use of space for modern living. We worked closely with all parties in the project team to overcome the challenges thrown up by the pandemic and to deliver first class buildings using sustainable materials.”

The vision of the Aberdeen City Council’s Housing Programme is to create sustainable integrated communities and places by delivering affordable homes designed for life which meet residents’ current and changing needs, while supporting the wellbeing and resilience of tenants.

They will meet the most demand for council properties including flats for single people, flats for families, terraced houses, wheelchair-friendly properties, and a small number of amenity bungalows. They are being designed for exacting standards including housing for various needs, dementia friendly, low carbon, low maintenance, and to meet the Gold Standard.

Ogilvie Construction is part of the Ogilvie Group and one of Scotland’s most consistently successful family-owned businesses.  The company is over 65 years old and employs more than 600 people across its various business operations in the UK.
