In January 2021, residents moved into the first Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) development of its kind to be completed in the UK. 


The award-winning Hope Rise in Bristol presented 11 affordable and low-carbon, modern design apartments which were installed as a permanent living space for young workers and vulnerable households. The ZED PODS ground-breaking concept, where environment-friendly homes are erected on steel frame stilts, has changed the way we think about land use in our fight to overcome the social housing crisis in the UK. 


This development, built on a council-owned car park on Chalk Road in the St George district of Bristol, shines a light on the opportunity to create similar community living spaces nationwide, using the very latest precision technology.
