IDPartnership, together with Elliott Associates
and Housing Consultancy Plus, formed Plan B Housing LLP in 2011.
Plan B has an innovative approach to delivering affordable social housing. The unique plan forms are designed to minimise waste and maximise functionality. Great care has been taken to simplify structure and detailing which makes the house types particularly suitable for training and apprenticeship purposes.
Plan B specialises in the design and development of special needs housing : accommodation for the elderly, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and those groups with special needs. Plan B was awarded the Constructing Excellence in the North East Award for Innovation and was shortlisted for the National Innovation Award 2014 for their work in simplifying, rationalising and facilitating the delivery of social housing units utilising their Plan B house types during the recession.
