Self / Custom build solutions.

Inspiring courses for professionals. Bristol 2013

Self build / custom build is an exciting, flexible and realistic solution to housing need.


Self build and custom build schemes have proven worldwide to be creative and empowering processes which deliver lasting social, economic and ecological benefits. This kind of housing makes up very little of the UK's housing stock compared to many other European countries. Councils and developers alike are starting to explore self /custom build as a viable, progressive house building solution.


“What if each household in the UK had the option to build their own place, with support from agencies and government, within flexible and resilient design codes? We’d see people sharing skills and saving money. We’d see neighbours working together on community self build schemes and local construction economies thriving. And we’d certainly see more energy efficient buildings and a wider embracing of green technologies.” Kevin McCloud.
