CHAP Group Awarded Major Council Housing Contract

Tuesday, August 13th, 2019


Following a competitive tendering exercise Aberdeen City Council has selected CHAP Group to build 369 housing units at the former Summerhill Academy site on the Lang Stracht.

The Summerhill scheme will be a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroomed homes, set amongst a network of paths and green spaces.

The new housing scheme will benefit from many additional features including access to the city’s Combined Heat and Power Scheme which uses waste heat from electricity generation.  All properties will also be fitted with fibre optic cables and ducting to ensure digital connectivity options are available to residents.

Douglas Thomson, joint managing Director of CHAP Group said: “We are absolutely delighted to assist Aberdeen City Council in delivering much needed council homes in the city.  CHAP are pleased to have been chosen to deliver such an important and prestigious project for the people of Aberdeen.”
