Hello Colin
Having undertaken some research into the properties shown on the street it would appear to be a variant of the Trusteel 3m type steel framed house of which 17000 were built in the UK.

Substructure: Concrete raft foundation thickened below
stanchions and loadbearing walls [1]. DPC.
Frame: 13 double cold RSC forming I-section stanchions
[2], 6 cold RSC perimeter beams with timber top and
bottom battens [3], 7 double cold RSC floor joists [4],
2 cold RSC and 5 double cold RSC roof trusses, see
frame layout [A].
Protective coating: Red oxide paint
External walls: Brick, cavity, foil-backed plasterboard,
plain plasterboard [5].
Separating wall: 9″ brick lined with plasterboard.
Partitions: Honeycomb plasterboard.
Ground floor: Concrete.
First floor: T&G boarding on steel joists.
Ceilings: Plasterboard.
Roof: Bituminous felt, timber battens and interlocking
concrete tiles.
Concrete pads or piles with PRC perimeter beams.
Concrete strip footings and brick substructure.
Varying numbers and arrangement of stanchions and
roof trusses, see frame layouts [B] and [C].
Single storey stanchions with perimeter beams connecting
the tops of stanchions.
Double cold RSA forming T-section ceiling joists.
External walls of PC panels or timber frame panels, clad
with shiplap timber boarding or tile hanging.
Brick or block cavity separating wall.
No-fines concrete separating wall.
Suspended ground floor of T&G boarding on timber
Stramit board linings and partitions.
Glass-fibre insulation quilt in cavity and roof space.
Asphalt or felt, flat or monopitch roofs lined with
woodwool slabs.
Slate roof cover.

I hope this helps
