Meeting your obligations for affordable housing

Meeting your obligations for affordable housing

ZERO carbon, low cost, ZEDpods – helping you rethink profitable starter homes for your development

For many private developers the challenge of making a profit on affordable housing elements and the requirements of planning obligations, including section 106 agreements, are real issues.

A new approach to starter homes which are quick to build, affordable and even help you take advantage of unwanted or awkward sites, could be the answer.

  • Need to meet obligations for affordable housing without comprising profitability for your development?
  • Require affordable but attractive, high quality housing elements for your scheme?
  • Want to maximise any spare land you have?
  • Interested to capitalise on air rights above car parks and waste space?
  • Want ZERO carbon fully sustainable solutions?
  • Have sites where conventional construction is not practical?

ZEDpods – instant high-quality homes to complement modern housing schemes

The zero carbon ZEDpod is a prefabricated designer home with a difference. It offers almost instant high-quality affordable housing solutions without the land issues associated with conventional new build.

With ZEDpods you can more easily satisfy planning obligations for affordable housing on your development, maintain profitability and ensure aspirational living for first time buyers or young people looking to rent.

With ZEDpods you can even develop heavily constrained, challenging or waste areas of land, where conventional construction just won’t work. (click here to see an example: three bridges case study with names removed for time being)

Designed to take advantage of empty spaces and hard standings, ZEDpods can be assembled sitting on the ground or on raised platforms above parking, to provide high performance low energy housing at a fraction of the cost of comparable solutions and an immediate revenue stream for your business.

Once delivered to site, construction and installation can be completed within 24 hours ready for immediate occupancy.
