New modular apartments in Bristol will be first for the UK

A new concept in high quality, rapid build, modular, low energy homes could be built over a car park in Bristol as the evolution of this type of housing gains popularity in the UK. The ZED pods development proposes to build 11 homes over the Chalks Road carpark, adjacent to St George Park in the city and pioneers a way to create an 100% affordable and low carbon housing development over an existing land use, a car park in this case. Subject to full planning permission, the homes could be built and occupied by October this year. According to the Bristol Housing Festival director Jez Sweetland. It will be the first of its kind in the UK. ‘In the context of the housing needs of the city it is important that we find creative ways to use land to test new ideas that can be scaled up to contribute to meeting our city’s housing needs. We also need to show that this can be done quickly as the existing need creates a demand for urgency,’ he said.
