MCNEIL STREET RIVERSIDE, GLASGOW

49 ‘very sustainable’ homes on a riverside setting overlooking the Clyde and Glasgow Green

McNeil Street Riverside, Glasgow

NGHA commissioned Austin-Smith:Lord to design 49 ‘very sustainable homes’ setting the challenge of developing an approach to energy efficient housing that was transferable and the housing association could apply in the future. Designs for the derelict brownfield site were developed in close consultation with the client and their tenant-led design committees and sought to reduce energy consumption and provide adaptable housing.

Working in collaboration with Gaia Architects, A-S:L’s in-house sustainability accredited architects developed an ‘eco-minimalist’ design ethos in line with our long-standing, pragmatic approach to sustainable housing.

High quality, genuinely sustainable design with innovative, workable, energy efficient features, excellent documentation and good contract management.
