Patrick Harvie MSP visits Passive House Development

16 May 2022

Patrick Harvie MSP, Minister for Zero Carbon Buildings, Active Travel and Tenants’ Rights visited our landmark Passive House affordable housing development at Springfield Cross, Glasgow for West of Scotland Housing Association.

The development, the largest of its kind in Glasgow, is at an advanced stage of construction and due to complete in summer.

It will comprise 36 flats, over six storeys, and has been created to meet Passive House Standard which reduces the building’s carbon footprint and contributes towards the Scottish Government’s target for emissions from heating buildings to reach zero by 2045.

We want everyone to have a safe, warm affordable home that meets their needs. I was delighted to be able to visit the Springfield Cross development and hear first-hand about the benefits that these homes, delivered with over £4 million of Scottish Government grant funding, are expected to bring to tenants.
