At a time of urgent demand for housing, this exemplary development arose out of a challenge. The cost of work required to build on elevated terrain, including huge retaining walls and bespoke drainage, ruled it out as an investment for commercial developers.

 

Plymouth City Council’s answer was to offer the former school site to affordable housing developers for £1 as part of their “Get Plymouth Building” programme. This was on the proviso that proposed schemes would be eco-friendly. Plymouth Community Homes took up the challenge, choosing to build to the Passivhaus standard with their chosen contractors Mi-space. Through full partner engagement, PCH made sure the whole build process went smoothly and the scheme (Primrose Park) went on to be an award-winning project.
