These two blocks are part owned by a housing association and part privately owned (by landlords and owner-occupiers). Funding from the Scottish Government, the Home Energy Efficiency Programmes for Scotland Area Based Schemes (HEEPS:ABS), meant that certain energy efficiency measures could be installed free of charge to private owners. The housing association could also benefit, to a lesser degree, from a UK funding scheme, the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) and contribute its own funding.
