Hi Lucy, thank you for your input but the properties you mention aren’t actually BISF Houses although I must agree that in many ways they do look very similar.
Modus (Amy Chivers Precast Concrete House

The houses at this location are actually Modus houses, manufactured by the Amey Chivers Housing Co. Ltd
They were Designed by Alex Robertson, Peter Francis and Partners R H Sims and they were built around 1966–70.
They are in fact quite a rare property with only around 280 built in the UK.
They are sometimes also called the Amey Chivers house. Amey Chivers went on to become the company that we know as Amey today.

Unlike the BISF house that was built with a steel frame, these properties were constructed from Pre Cast Concrete.

I’m very glad you found these though as I had been searching for some of these properties to investigate for quite a while so many thanks indeed.

Marc

Hi Lucy, the houses in Earls Close are actually Tarran Newland houses which are often mistaken for BISF Houses. The ones that I have seen have been refurbished to a very high standard with brick slips, making identification even more difficult but thank you for your input.

Hi Rod, thank you once again for your input. I added your streets to the list back in 2016 but due to some data that we lost on our site, I’m just re replying to some of the old responses.
Many Thanks

Marc

Thanks once again for your valuable input Barrie45

I know I’ve already replied to your post but we appear to have lost some data following a site reset, hence why this reply appears to be very late when it’s actually not.

Regards

Marc
