Feasibility Study and Accompanying Presentation "Building - Do-It-Yourself Made Simple"
City: Münster
Field of activity: Socially Responsible Provision of Housing
Project description:

"Building - do it yourself made simple" can help to reduce the cost of building by monitored partnership in self-help groups so that families with a low income can afford their own homes. There is a need for such measures in Münster. For this reason, the main committee and the committee for financial affairs passed a principal resolution in 1998 commissioning the administration to acquire a suitable plot of land and to begin the project in the near future.
A particular part of the project is the compilation of a feasibility study which is geared to Münster's demand- and target group-orientated concept as well as having the qualified accompanying presentation of the future self-help groups. The concept and experiences will be documented.
In this feasibility study, the demand for this segment of the housing market is going to be estimated and preparations made for finding and supporting suitable occupants. The expert monitoring during the building phase serves to support future house builders and acquires data for optimizing the measures for self-help groups, especially technical and social aspects.
Current status: For non-project but location related reasons, the project could not be carried out at the designated location and a new location has to be found. The feasibility study on this account isn't put into practice during the term of the model project.

Contractors: Due to location-related delays, this feasibility study will probably no longer be able to be carried out within the ExWoSt-Project "Cities of the Future".
