Ropeworks Phase 7 saw Hart Builders deliver 151 homes for mid-market rent to the former Edinburgh Roperie and Sailworks Company site in Leith.

The £25 million project is part of a larger re-development of the disused brownfield site, over 600 homes, and is providing much needed high quality affordable rental homes to the city. 151 homes consisting of a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom properties are contained within the four blocks.

Veitchi Frame was contracted to provide their light gauge steel frame system to the three taller blocks over a 26-week programme. In total, the project was approximately 11,000m2 split between two 5-storey blocks and one six-storey.

Working in collaboration with the client, 7N architects and Harley Haddow engineers, Veitchi Frame completed the project during 2021, a COVID interrupted year. Our Modern Method of Construction (MMC) solution ensured COVID guidelines were easily achieved due to the small number of personnel required to erect the structural frame.
