Our Journey So Far

Commencement on the Rowarden Affordable Housing Project began on-site earlier this year during the summer, and we are delighted with the progress that has been made thus far.

Marking a significant step forward, it’s essential to acknowledge the dedicated efforts of our team over the past 5 years. Quantum Solutions has consistently demonstrated innovation and a strong commitment to collaboration throughout, which has been instrumental in overcoming several challenges. Our dedication and hard work have been crucial in achieving some remarkable milestones:

  • Working closely with the client on initial feasibility exercises to help identify suitable viable sites on Arran for affordable home development.
  • Supporting the client to successfully secure a considerable Scottish Government grant from the Rural & Islands Housing Fund, one of the largest grants to date.
  • Implementing an innovative procurement approach called “Construction Management” which is very well suited to more remote island locations.
  • Collaborating with the client, design team and local residents to identify a suitable supply chain of sub-contractors for the project mostly based across Arran and Ayrshire.
  • Investigating and implementing new modern construction methods such as fully pre-fabricated piling and foundation systems.

As we reflect on the journey of the Rowarden Affordable Housing Project, we celebrate the remarkable progress that has been made. From conception to continued project delivery, we’re thrilled at this significant step forward in the future of affordable housing solutions that will contribute positively to the Arran community.
