A Scottish Government-funded programme is looking for a partner to design and build a resource-efficient house which could be a template for the construction industry in future.

Zero Waste Scotland wants architects, builders and developers to throw their ring into the hat for the project which could potentially save the industry millions every year.

The group estimates that if all of the 17,112 new homes built in Scotland last year had sent zero waste to landfill, this would have saved 85,560 tonnes of construction waste saving the industry over £4million.

Iain Gulland, Director of Zero Waste Scotland, said: “The successful applicant will have the opportunity to position themselves as a market-leader in Scotland’s future housing development, setting a new standard in sustainability and potentially influencing the next generation of building standards.”
