The development consisted of two storey terraced houses and 2No. blocks of four storey common access flats for City of Edinburgh Council. 


The buildings were of timber frame construction with masonry block work and pre-cast concrete stair cores to the flatted blocks.  Foundations were a combination of strip and trenchfill footings. 


Site levels were carefully optimised within the site to compliment the environmental remediation scheme to mitigate off-site disposal of contaminated soils. 


Roads and parking were construction from porus paving to provide SUDS treatment of run-off and stormwater attenuation was provided by below ground cellular storage.
