Project Team

…. Planning permission is a welcome step forwards and now we need to work to ensure that this development comes forward as quickly as possible, with the construction process supporting this, as well as helping minimise noise disturbance on site during the shortened construction process. I am pleased that the proposal includes CCTV and a good standard of lighting which will assist in deterring anti-social behaviour which has occurred in this car park in the past. The plan also includes some landscaping in the car park which is rather bare at the moment.’

Councillor Peter Morgan

Executive Councillor for Renewal Recreation and Housing

London Borough of Bromley



Building affordable, energy-efficient homes remains a problem for the council and relying only on traditional construction is not the solution.

Bromley Council has very high affordable housing needs, with only 14% of its housing stock as socially rented. They wanted to boost affordable housing supply on council owned sites, otherwise vulnerable people will be forced to make difficult choices, decreasing their quality of life and well-being while the council must absorb circa £4m in cost by 2022/23 to fulfil its statutory duties for homeless people.  

Building affordable, energy-efficient homes remains a problem for the council and relying only on traditional construction is not the solution. They wanted to commence the supply and install of temporary accommodations as quickly as possible, and offsite volumetric technology solution of ZED PODS was chosen as the right solution.

Full Turnkey


ZED PODS brought forward this development on constrained site using our innovative off-site volumetric construction.

By carrying out the full turnkey Design & Build process, we worked closely with the Council & key stakeholders at every stage of decision making from design to planning and will follow the same from manufacturing to installation.

“Hearts and mind” were won from local residents and stakeholders by installing a full-sized demo unit for over 12 months at Bromley Civic Centre. These early interventions and process innovations were key to this project’s success. 


Be Lean: reduce energy demand

Be Clean: supply energy efficiently

Be Green: use renewable energy

ZED PODS has designed and built this innovative, cost-effective, zero-operational-carbon housing development situated above an underutilized public car park in Burnt Ash Lane. These self-contained, high-quality homes are elevated on steel podiums, preserving over 80% of the existing car parking spaces for the local community. Kevin Fenton Mews delivers 25 aesthetically pleasing homes to individuals in vulnerable situations residing outside the borough. The development consists of 10 one-bedroom flats and 15 two-bedroom flats, incorporating the latest enhanced energy-efficient measures. Remarkably, it marks the first of its kind in the borough in 40 years and stands as the inaugural project of its nature in London.
