WWII prefabs were built to a standard design, by a number of manufacturers using a variety of materials. The council considered 4 designs, "Arcon", "Uni-Seco", "Tarran" and the "Portal" Steel House. The Uni-Seco bungalows were polular as they had much to recommend them, including better external appearance; and a generally more 'homely' treatment of the walls and ceilings.
