Motivating Collective Custom Build is a research project led jointly by the University of Sheffield, Ash Sakula Architects and Design For Homes. The research explores the remaining barriers to a wider adoption of collective forms of self-build as a means of housing procurement in the UK and surveys the significant innovation across the self-provided housing sector, concluding that new models for development are needed and that pioneering initiatives depend upon cross-sector partnerships for delivery. The project also includes a short film and web-resource designed to be used by key industry players – including local authorities, developers, house-builders and community groups – to make the case for Collective Custom Build, identifying the opportunities to overcome remaining barriers through strategic partnerships.
