Bath Road Modular Housing
In response to the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 and review of costs to provide interim accommodation for the homeless, Chiltern & South Bucks District Councils commissioned the innovative delivery of 12 temporary apartments (nine 2B 4P & three 1B 2P) on a meanwhile site. The key challenges of the brief were speed of delivery and ability to relocate the dwellings to another site after the expiry of the temporary planning permission. These challenges informed the decision to adopt a volumetric modular construction method.
Kier was appointed by Chiltern & South Bucks District Councils through the SCAPE framework to deliver the scheme. Austin-Smith:Lord was subsequently appointed by Kier as the Executive Architect for the delivery phase.
