Introduction

ZED PODS have been commissioned by Cornwall Council to build a residential development comprising 10 single-occupancy apartments, with work due to start in Spring 2021.

Working closely with the Cownwall Council and appointed contractor, we designed and supplied 10 state-of-the-art one-bedroom ‘move on’ accommodation. This development of net-zero-carbon housing — the first of its kind for the Council — will celebrate the site’s heritage while providing top-quality accommodation, akin to a modern apartment, available for social rent.

The scheme built at Cowlins Mill, Penhallick Road, Carn Brea — Net zero-carbon / Built to EPC Rating A, it will be an exemplar of sustainable design and construction.

Site Location

‘‘

With housing a top priority for this council, we are delighted to see this development begin on the ground. It is clear to see that these homes will provide those in the most need with a comfortable place to live while we help them to find long-term accommodation. This is just one of many ways in which we are working to tackle the housing pressures that we are experiencing.”
