St. Nicholas Court is located in the town centre of Leith and was delivered on behalf of Port of Leith Housing Association. The project involved a four-storey extension an existing complex comprising eight one bedroom flats delivered by traditional construction methods.
A sun lounge and guest bedroom, plus additional landscaping – including allotment plots for the residents to grow their own fruit, vegetables, and flowers – have also been created to encourage leisurely activity amongst the elderly residents.
Alongside the new build extension, the heating system and bathrooms were also upgraded in the original 35-bedroom development. Services were upgraded to improve environmental performance, replacing the original systems that were 34 years old.
Arc-Tech became involved in the project in January 2017 working in tandem with the Main Contractor, first installing solar photovoltaic panels on the roof and then moving on to the installation of mechanical services. The full list of services are as follows:
- Water Services
- LTHW Heating System
- Dry Riser Installation
- PV Installation
ST Nicholas Court was completed in June 2017.
