Plan B Housing: Overview

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.

As of February 2015, the LLP has delivered 30 units, currently has 275 units on site and has a further 254 ‘in the pipeline’.
