This development of four luxury new homes involved months of extremely careful spatial planning and tree survey work, to ensure careful protection of the surrounding woodland. Built to extremely high quality of finish and environmental performance, these homes were truly unique and highly sought after.

Walliwall is a large development, and will upon completion provide 91 new homes on the edge of Kirkwall.

The development has a mix of rented and new supply shared equity tenure types. High levels of air tightness, triple glazed windows, as well as closed panel highly insulated timber framed construction make these some of the most efficiently designed homes in the County.

A large central amenity core will provide recreation and play area for those living within this new community to enjoy.

Peerie Sea Loan

In 2010 we submitted a competitive tender for the provision of land, design and construction of 40 new houses in Kirkwall for Orkney Islands Council. This development came with extremely demanding time requirements, and had to be completed within 24-months of contract award. As a result, Scotframe’s Val-U-Therm closed panel pre-insulated timber framed system was specified, and was supplied with all external doors & windows pre-fitted at factory. The project was one of the first of a wider programme of housebuilding undertaken Orkney Islands Council, of which Orkney Builders has to date delivered a total of 122 new homes.

Berstane Road/Papdale Loan

Following our acquisition of the site in 2011 we considered a number of proposals and housing mixes upon the site, concluding with the six detached bungalow layout that obtained planning consent during early November 2012. The mix of two and three bed house types proved extremely popular, and as a result these house types have become part of our regular suite of new build properties.
