Definition of Non-Traditional Housing

What is Traditional Housing?
Usually, houses and flats are traditionally built.  By this we mean constructed of brick and tile,  brick and slate,  stone and slate, render and tile, render and slate or even timber frame, depending on which part of the country you are from.
What is Non-Traditional Housing?
Non-traditional housing construction can be classed as construction techniques that utilise systems of building, focused on speed and economy of construction.  It is the sort of construction that is used where a great deal of housing is required quickly, so it was often used by local authorities to mass build. 

History of Non-Traditional Housing

Pre-1919
House-building had virtually ceased during the four years of the Great War, 1914 – 1918.  Prior to this, changes in housing construction had been relatively gradual, allowing plenty of time for assessing the performance in use of materials and components brought together in a novel way. 

After WWI
During World War 1 our housing stock had been bombed and demolished, leaving the country with fewer houses.  There had also been a lack of maintenance over the war years, as the workforce had been at war.  Upon the return of the armed forces houses were needed quickly.  Replacement and renewal of housing was a major issue with an acute shortage of housing. This was when the use of pre-fabrication for house building was first seen in the UK in significant numbers.  1918 was the starting point for non-traditional house building. The building industry at the time was seriously affected by a shortage of skilled labour and essential materials due to the war effort.  However, of the total 4.5 million houses erected in Great Britain between 1919 and 1939, the number built by new methods was comparatively small.  It is difficult to say precisely how many non-traditional dwellings were built during this period, but the figure is probably less than 250 000, with the vast majority for Local Authority use.  In general, the pace of innovation took over and house-builders entered unchartered territories.

After the Second World War
The Second World War brought an even greater demand for the rapid construction of new dwellings.  In addition to the need to rebuild homes damaged as a result of the war, the Government had other objectives that were set out in a white paper in 1945, to provide a separate dwelling for any family who wanted one and to complete the slum clearance programme started before the war. After the Second World War there was a surplus of steel and aluminium production, and an industry in need of diversification.  These factors drove the move towards the use of prefabrication, as a result many new varieties of concrete, timber framed and steel framed systems emerged.  Whilst most systems were intended to provide permanent or long-term housing a few were intended only as emergency or temporary solutions.

Development of UK Housing Systems

Development of UK House Building Systems
Throughout the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s important changes in house construction were taking place with considerable attention focussed on productivity and new methods of production. The philosophy shifted towards that of Industrialised building. This is based on the principle that as much work as possible is transferred from the site to the factory leaving a simple assembly system to be carried out on site. Off-site manufacturing shifts the entire house-building process into the factory, cutting down on time and gets around the problem of the shortage of skilled labour.
After the war years the types of construction included large panel construction, Wimpey no fine concrete construction, Airey houses and some high rise buildings.  1954 was a high water mark for housing production in the UK, with just under 350 000 dwellings completed.  From then on, output dropped steadily, before stabilising at a plateau of around 300 000 in 1960.

During the 1950’s high rise construction was gathering pace.  There was a lot of enthusiasm for, and confidence in industrialised building by those promoting it.  The bias was now towards high and medium rise flats, a pattern which was to continue right through to 1975.  However, a large section of the public remained suspicious about ‘modern building’, particularly high rise construction, whether it was an industrialised building system or not.  The subsidy reforms of 1967 effectively rang the death-knell for the tower block, sealed by the partial collapse of Ronan Point, a high rise, 22-storey large panel construction, in 1968.
During the 1960s another approach to construction also gained popularity. Of the great variety of approaches taken, it was found that improvements in productivity could be realised by simplifying (or ‘rationalising’) the design and construction of traditional buildings to produce the Rationalised Traditional Construction, known as ‘Rat-Trads’.  They had masonry cross-walls with the front and rear elevations in-filled with storey-height timber framed panels.  Dimension and details were standardised.

Another type of construction used during the 1960s and 1970s was volumetric construction which involved producing buildings as a number of boxes that are connected on site.  This usually involved lightweight frame constructions of either timber or metal and some pre-cast concrete systems and pre-cast volumetric concrete systems were also used.

In the late 1970s and 1980s steel, timber and concrete systems continue with timber framed construction dominating until a dramatic downturn in popularity following adverse TV coverage. In the early 1980s an episode of World in Action was severely critical of a small group of timer framed dwellings in the West of England.  The gist of the programme was that the dwellings were not watertight, and that the inevitable consequence had been early development of decay in parts of the structure.  It implied that these dwellings might be typical of all timber frame construction, and that many more owners of such homes could expect severe problems in the future and accordingly timber frame could not be considered a suitably robust means of construction.  A survey of more than 400 dwellings, many in areas of severe weather exposure, found no evidence of decay and the catalogue of failures predicted by the programme never materialised.  But the damage was done and this area of the market collapsed because of the programme and the idea of homes from the factory was to lie dormant for the next 15 years.

1974 saw major changes in Building Regulations and very few new systems were developed after that date.   The range of systems and construction techniques used has been extremely varied, with over 500 systems used between 1919 and 1976.

Performance of non-traditional Housing

Although age, wear, lack of maintenance and misuse take their toll and make buildings look rather poor, many non-traditional housing systems initially provided quite pleasant looking homes, and a good number remain so.  In general most non-traditional housing systems have performed well from a structural point of view, although some problems developed with a number of system-built dwellings.
By the 1980s some fundamental problems affecting structural stability and durability began to emerge in some of the concrete system built houses.  The problems occurred, because of either carbonation, or the presence of chlorides in the concrete which resulted in the corrosion of steel.
Overall, the majority of non-traditional dwellings have provided levels of performance not very different from many traditionally built dwellings of the same age.  However, there are inherent defects with several systems.  Some dwellings may be beyond economic repair.

The Housing Defects Act 1984

Whilst some properties have been successful, others suffer from basic design faults.  The BRE (Building Research Establishment) was commissioned by the Government in the early 1980s to assess a range of house types whose condition was causing concern.  Defects were discovered in the design and construction of a number of house types designed and built before 1960 and these were subsequently designated as inherently defective under the Housing Defects Legislation.

The Housing Defects Act 1984 (now incorporated into the Housing Act 1985)(since repealed in Scotland) was introduced to deal with these problems.   The Act made provision of grants to homeowners wishing to bring their properties up to a mortgage able standard.  Owners’ were entitled to government assistance for a 10 year period from 1984.  Houses subject to assistance were covered by a PRC certificate. Unfortunately the Government ceased to fund the scheme in the 1990s and it lapsed.   
One of the main problems with non-traditional houses whether defective or not, is that the mortgage companies such as banks or building societies refused to lend money against them to potential buyers.  Under the Right to Buy, it was the tenant who required a mortgage and amendments to the properties were required in order to get it, even though in many cases there was nothing physically wrong with the properties.  Therefore, over the years, there has been the need to convert non-traditional housing into traditional housing to improve borrowing opportunities.

The National Home Building Council (NHBC) still keep a list of the firms that will undertake work to the PRC scheme standard and for some people with a PRC constructed home, this is a route to mortgageability.
Housing organisations and associations with large amounts of stock also required properties to be brought up to a more modern standard for thermal efficiency, which normally involved a cladding system along with checks on structural elements.  Some properties have even had to be practically re-built, which can be very difficult and would be almost as costly as building from scratch.

Fuel Poverty & Non-Traditional Housing

The Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) carried out an investigation into non-traditionally constructed homes and identifying the risk of fuel poverty for residents.  The CSE was commissioned to undertake the study for the Hard-to-Treat Homes sub-group of the Energy Efficiency Partnership for Homes (EEPfH).  The study used the House Condition Survey data to calculate fuel poverty risk.  Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) ratings were first calculated for each non-traditional housing type and then running costs were compared with published data on general income distribution.

52 Local Authorities with significant numbers of non-traditional housing were identified as study areas.  Whilst Calderdale wasn’t one of them, Leeds, Bradford and Wakefield were. 

The findings were that overall, low-rise non-traditional housing is more energy efficient than traditional masonry dwellings with solid walls, but less so than traditional cavity wall housing.  Of the main types of construction, non-traditional, medium and high-rise flats have the highest SAP ratings, despite a significant proportion of inefficient dwellings.

Based on the ‘full-income’ definition of fuel poverty, levels of fuel poverty are generally higher in both low-rise and high-rise non-masonry dwellings than in other forms of construction, with the exception of traditional masonry dwellings with solid walls.

The research of potential case studies found that significant levels of improvement have been and continue to be carried out on all non-traditional stock.  Findings suggest that good practice would require stock owners to thermally improve the walls through external cladding or replacement, insulation of roof or loft spaces and replacing inefficient central heating.
