“The ZEDfactory team decided to start with a blank sheet of paper and work out the optimum configuration of durability with low embodied carbon footprint, avoiding toxic inflammable insulation materials, minimising cold bridging and maximising airtightness with a super insulated breathing wall construction. The plan was to minimise overall environmental impact and create new homes that could be both climate neutral and mortgageable with building integrated renewable energy systems.
After a year spent touring the standard volumetric building manufacturers in the UK and being told we were asking for the impossible - we found Lesko and two months later had built the first ZEDpod and exhibited it at Futurebuild. We are now in production with a housing product and full urban system that redefines what is possible, sensible, responsible and above all inspirational”.

“In order to deliver ZEDpods to the marketplace, it was important to partner with an organisation capable of understanding the design and delivery challenges faced when innovating . Lesko Modular Group Ltd stood out with their knowledge base, skill set and key personnel. They were capable in tooling up quickly to deliver a new production line and only by working closely together have we been able to develop a housing product that will meet quality standards demanded by both housing association and private market clients. Lesko Modular Group's BOPAS, ISO 9001 accreditation and LHC NH2 framework approval is testament to their dedication to quality in the manufacturing process”

“Partnering with the manufacturer was the only way we could have taken the nHouse concept to this point”
