Inspired by our desire to create truly different building solutions for many types of clients, we created Carepods – affordable, high-quality, rapid-build modular homes for keeping infirm, elderly or vulnerable relatives close-by whilst preserving their independence.
A new approach to care
The Carepod modular system offers a new approach to caring for an elderly or physically-challenged member of the family. A Carepod can be installed into an existing home’s garden, offering state-of-the-art facilities on your doorstep. Nursing care can be provided as a live-in solution, or by a care provider visiting for the required hours each day. Our access system allows care to be monitored both visually and by sound, via an app or website, ensuring peace of mind for relatives and care providers. Carepods have voice-activation technology to allow operation of media, doors, blinds, heating and ventilation, and the system also allows a call for help, if required, which can be adapted to personal situations.
Carepod Villages – Larger scale usage
The Carepod solution can be provided on a larger scale – within a care home’s grounds for example – or as a total care solution with additional modular buildings providing communal space to create a complete complex, or Carepod Village.
Our Carepods can be provided in multi-room configurations, allowing communities of individual and group living spaces to be created, linked to a main community hub. This solution is perfect for assisted-living situations provided by local authorities, allowing individual to have their own personal space but with communal recreational interaction, community involvement and wellbeing.
Complete care building solution
We can work with public authorities and care providers to offer a complete modular care building solution that offers rapid deployment with high-quality facilities. Our buildings have high energy efficiencies with low running costs. We can provide long-term leasing of up to 25 years to public sector clients and up to 7 years for commercial clients.

Construction methods and specifications
Certain elements of our standard designs can be modified, according to individual needs – for instance, providing grab rails, wider and easier access for wheelchair-users, or adjustable-height surfaces Carepods® give you the cost and convenience benefits of a high-spec modular system, with the opportunity to get exactly the right solution for your care needs
Carepods are pre-installed with electrical and communications cabling, ducting, pipework, drainage etc for all the necessary utilities – including air-conditioning, if required Customers have a choice of shower-room sanitary-ware, kitchen units and appliances, fitted bedroom wardrobes, flooring material, overall décor style and colour finishes What starts life as a standard pod, becomes a stylish, comfortable
All of the cladding options for Carepods are chosen for their fire-retardance properties as much as their aesthetic appearance, weather protection and thermal insulation performance The external finish can blend in with surrounding buildings or contrast with them, be from a range of traditional timbers or a contemporary-styled finish – the choice is yours
Carepods are designed as a modular system of interlocking units that are pre-fabricated in a controlled environment, then transported to site for assembly This avoids the risk of on-site delays and damage from rain and frost, which can occur with traditional on-site construction The modular route is flexible, fast, cost-effective and high-quality
Carepods are built with innovative, eco-friendly materials and components – like electric underfloor heating – that deliver energy efficiency, low running costs and comfortable living Wall, floor and roof sections utilise composite Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) for rigidity, strength and thermal efficiency All external windows and doors – including panoramic bi-folds, where specified – conform
Whether your ground is heavy clay, prone to water-logging, or on a slope, we can use the best foundation option to suit – without the need for the time-consuming, deep excavation that’s required for traditional brick buildings Carepods are relatively lightweight and can very often be mounted onto galvanised steel and concrete foundations that provide
