This paper discusses the severe housing affordability problems of certain areas of the UK and the Government's "Key Worker" initiative designed to enable teachers, health workers and other essential workers to purchase housing in these areas. A case study of a proprietary pre-fabricated housing type, which may provide one solution to the provision of low cost housing, is presented. A detailed analysis of the energy requirements of the case study building and its assessment under the BRE's EcoHomes scheme is provided.
