Why did we create ZED PODS?
Foreseeing the looming housing shortage ZED PODS Ltd began designing attractive, affordable housing made of quality materials. We have operationalised the vision so the pods can be available to the masses (of young people).
ZED PODS are built to higher standards than conventional houses. They are super insulated, triple glazed and have heat recovery ventilation and lots of daylight. This reduces energy demand and makes the homes “energy neutral” to lower their running costs. The homes are constructed from quality fireproof, durable and robust materials and are designed to last as long as a traditionally built home – so we are completely rethinking prefabricated housing.
We offer fast built high-quality and affordable homes, but without the land and site issues associated with conventional new build.
Our ZED PODS are designed to take advantage of existing city-centre car park locations, hard standings or unused spaces, and are assembled sitting on the ground, or on raised platforms with parking beneath.
It’s a zero-carbon solution, providing high-performance, low-energy housing at a fraction of the cost of comparable solutions and with minimal demand on existing services and infrastructures.
Once delivered to site, construction and installation can be completed often within a day for a single unit, ready for immediate occupancy.
“ZED PODS can be constructed following conventional planning and construction processes. But the beauty of the concept is that it separates housing provision from land prices, taking advantage of air-rights over car parks and unused open spaces. It means Pods can be installed and maintained at no cost to the land’s owner. This enables affordable, quality city homes for keyworkers, where land is scarce or expensive, while maintaining precious parking resources.”
