How our property PR agency helped CALA to motor ahead of the rest with prime coverage

CALA is joining forces with Tesla and Jorro for a photo opportunity to promote the huge electric vehicle charging infrastructure at The Crescent Pictured Stacy MacMillan, Sales Consultant at The Crescent with David Pickles from Jorro with host of coverage achieved by property PR agency, Holyrood PR

A LEADING home developer is ‘plugging in’ to the surging demand for electric vehicles (EVs) by creating the most comprehensive charging provision of any development built to date in the country.

All 84 apartments at The Crescent at Donaldson’s by CALA Homes (East) will be served by an EV fast charger, with the infrastructure built into the underground parking at the premium Edinburgh development.

The provision is a result of a partnership with Scotland’s leading EV charge point installers, Jorro Ltd, with The Crescent marking its largest developer project to date.

We identified this as a major good news story for CALA Homes, helping to reinforce its position as a responsible homebuilder in the market.

In a nod to the forward-thinking and energy-conscious designs of The Crescent, we also arranged a photocall with elite electric car manufacturer, Tesla, bringing two of its premium vehicles into the grounds to test the facilities.
