Rethinking affordable housing in your community

Rethinking affordable housing in your community

A rapid, quality solution

Affordable housing for key workers and first-time buyers remains a fundamental issue for local authorities.

But working with developers, who remain focused on maximising profit, isn’t delivering the numbers you need and the costs of temporary accommodation for those who desperately need housing continues to rise.

A unique low-cost solution, that builds quality pre-fabricated accommodation units above existing car parks, close to places of work and existing transport infrastructure and without impact to existing parking provisions, could be the answer.

  • Need a new way to deliver fast, low-cost affordable housing?
  • Would like to make better use of unwanted, difficult to develop land and windfall sites
  • Want to help more young people buy their own homes near or where they work
  • Spend budget on building affordable homes instead of costly B&B accommodation

The ZEDpod Solution

The fully Space Standards Compliant ZEDpod is a prefabricated one bedroom starter-home with a difference. It offers almost instant high-quality housing without the land and site issues associated with conventional new build.

Built above car parks or on difficult to develop and awkward spaces, the ZEDpod offers a low risk, rapid build, solution with minimum site disruption.

It’s a low energy solution designed to resolve housing needs for key workers and first-time buyers with minimal demand on existing services and infrastructures.
Once delivered to site, construction and installation can be completed, often within 24 hours for a single unit, ready for immediate occupancy.

With a range of designs from our RIBA award-winning architect and engagement options, our modular solution enables you to build to high standards and meet your housing needs faster.
