The energy efficient new homes, on track to be completed before the end of 2019, will incorporate solar panels to generate renewable electricity for tenants.
The £3.43 million development forms part of the council’s five-year Strategic Housing Investment Plan (SHIP) to deliver high quality, accessible homes in neighbourhoods where people want to live.
Although innovative, modular building methods are used for the Ardrossan Road site, the houses incorporate traditional features such as painted, cast window surrounds and decorative chimneys making them indistinguishable from the vernacular architecture.
Yvonne Baulk, Head of Physical Environment at North Ayrshire Council, said: “This development at Seamill forms part of one of the most ambitious council house building programmes under way in Scotland".
North Ayrshire Council has committed to building 1,375 new properties by March 2024.
