Project Overview

Providing affordable housing remains a fundamental issue for local authorities. Working traditionally with developers is not delivering the numbers needed. The costs of housing tenants in temporary accommodation continues to rise and the UK is desperately in need of long-term housing solutions. Foreseeing the looming housing shortage, ZED PODs Ltd have developed a unique solution, that offers innovative, highly energy-efficient modular homes which provide permanent living space for young professionals, key workers & vulnerable households. We build energy positive new homes above existing car parks whilst retaining the parking spaces beneath - an excellent solution to land, revenue, sustainability & permanent housing issues.

Our housing project "Hope Rise", in collaboration with Bristol City Council, Bristol Housing Festival (BHF) and local charity, has been designed to be the first 100% affordable and low-carbon housing development aimed at creating a mixed tenure affordable housing scheme over the Chalks Road car park, adjacent to St. George Park, Bristol. It is a pioneering environmental and socially focused development which will deliver much needed social housing in St George for young people in need of affordable housing.
