Traditional Contract:
Ecopods, Bradford Schools

Ecopods, Bradford Schools completed in March 2009

The Brief:
To construct several Ecopods sited at various schools made from recycled shipping containers, the units were constructed with the environment in mind using materials and energy from renewable sources.

We had to ensure minimum disruption as the works were carried out during term time.

The construction of these Ecopods was carried out using the following methods:

  • Concrete pad foundations
  • Used shipping containers
  • Tradis wall and floor panels
  • Hemp, Wool & recycled paper insulation
  • Solar and wind turbine power for lighting and sockets
  • Composting toilet system
