About the project
Client: Sanctuary Scotland Housing Association
Form of contract: Design and Build
Project value: £16m
MAST, in partnership with DTZ Pieda, undertook an options appraisal study of 495 Scottish homes in Anderston, Glasgow. This study saw Sanctuary Scotland Housing Association successfully appointed as preferred alternative landlord. Following a successful masterplan and tenant ballot win, we were appointed to develop the detailed design of Phases 1 and 2, comprising of 176 flats & maisonettes over 5 and 6 storeys.
These new energy efficient flats replaced the previous poorly insulated and noise transmission based problems of original 1960s construction. The 176 units across phases 1 & 2 range in flat types from 2-6 bedroom flats, all designed to Housing for Varying Needs.
Working alongside occupational therapists, we were able to adapt a number of the flats to
suit the individual requirements of the residents. A collaboration that allowed us to achieve lifetime homes principles.
