What are BISF Houses?

BISF stands for British Iron and Steel Federation.  There were various different types of these houses:

BISF Type A and BISF Type A1 were built between 1944 and 1950.

There were approximately 35,000 built.

There were also BISF Type B and BISF Type C, of which less were built.

They were all designed by Frederick Gibberd.

Generally we survey BISF Type A1.  The house would have looked quite different when it was built with a shallow pitched profile asbestos cement sheet roof with external walls rendered to first floor level and vertical profile steel sheets above this.  Many mortgage lenders are not happy to lend on this type of property.
