Contemporary home near Gogar Castle moves to next stage

In The News: Architects, Block Nine Architects, are to progress its technical designs for a new high-end contemporary two-storey dwelling near Edinburgh’s A-listed historic Gogar Castle.

xburo provided its expert services:

🟢 Energy and sustainability services to set the low energy, low carbon solution for the project that will feature ground source heat pumps, PV and integrated battery and thermal storage to deliver a low energy dwelling fit for the future and the move to Net Zero.

🟢 As part of the definition of the strategy the team carried our detailed dynamic simulation modelling to design out overheating risk while working within a highly performing thermal envelope.

The MEP team will also deliver the detailed design input as we move into the construction stage of the project.

The project is currently at technical design stages, with an anticipated start on site in the spring of 2024. The consultancy team includes architects from Block Nine Architects, structural engineering Calum Benett Engineering Ltd., planning consultant JLL and xburo.
