2018

Projects commencing in 2018
Parenting in a house share (ESRC IAA)

Contract research for Commonweal Housing explored different types of shared housing available for non-resident parents and investigated their experiences of parenting their children whilst living in shared housing. This ESRC Impact Acceleration Account project will significantly increase the wider impact of this research, and will focus on the experience of fathers.

Digital Built Britain Housing Network

The Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) has commissioned CCHPR to establish a network of academics, practitioners, policy makers and government to determine the key areas of inquiry in relation to residential housing and DBB. An evidence base will be established which will scope out a research programme designed to meet the needs of UK plc in delivering housing in a digital built Britain.

Planning for Affordable Housing (PLANAFFHO)

Dr Sónia Alves is currently working on PLANAFFHO - a two year Marie Sklowdowska-Curie Fellowship which aims to examine how land use planning contributes to the provision of affordable housing for people on low incomes, and how it has promoted a mix of housing tenures within new developments in three European capital cities - Copenhagen, Lisbon and London - since 2007.

Evaluation of the Reimagining Rent Programme

The Young Foundation has commissioned CCHPR to undertake an evaluation of the Reimagining Rent Programme, assessing its effectiveness in supporting participating innovations to grow and achieving wider impact.

Uptake of digital tools in the UK house building sector

Our mini-project for the Centre for Digital Built Britain looks at the uptake of digital tools in the UK house building sector. It provides a ‘state of the nation’ report into the opportunities and barriers to the uptake of the digital tools, standards and processes that are collectively known as Building Information Modelling (BIM).
