HBV Group delivers first supported living development in Scotland in Edinburgh.
We are pleased to announce that work has completed on our latest major new development – in Leith, Edinburgh, which provides high-quality new homes for local people with long-term disabilities.
In April 2019, Triple Point announced its investment in the scheme with construction officially started by Deidre Brock, the MP for Edinburgh North and Leith.
Twenty-four new supported housing apartments have been built on West Bowling Green Street in Leith, which are specially adapted to provide long-term homes for people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and other complex care requirements. Residents will be referred to the scheme by the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership based on significant local need, with care provided to residents by Lifeways, and housing management services provided by Inclusion Housing.
The £5.4m scheme, called Heron Court, is the first of its type in Scotland and has been developed by HBV, a specialist supported living developer, using funding from Triple Point.
The developers instructed an all-Scottish construction team including Edinburgh-based architects 56Three, structural and civil engineers Curtins, locally-based mechanical and electrical consultants Horizon M&E and Alloa-based contractor Marshall Construction.
his type of housing has been shown to improve the wellbeing of people moving out of institutional care settings, while saving the government money.
Our investment delivery partners are looking to invest in more supported housing schemes like Heron Court across Scotland and the rest of the UK.
