The initiative is part of the biggest local authority housebuilding programme in Aberdeen in more than 50 years which aims to deliver an additional 2,000 council homes for the region.
Donald MacDonald, Managing Director, Ogilvie Construction, said:

“Improving the quality of life for residents is fundamental to everything the Council does and the provision of high quality, affordable housing offering a range of tenancies is central to that.
“Our Local Outcome Improvement Plan – shaped with partners – has at its heart place-making and to that end we are committed to creating inclusive new communities where people feel connected and valued.”
