A Brief History
Ecopod Concepts was founded by a highly experienced home builder to offer an alternative to costly building methods and low spec prefab buildings. Having come from bespoke residential building and working with log cabins overseas, ecopods was the result of a fusion of these principles. Mostly timber construction and customisable, ecopods offer a versatile yet affordable solution to various building needs.
We believe we're at the forefront of a changing landscape redefining how people live and work. We're grateful to be equipped with the tools to make a difference.
We love helping people into buildings that we know will enhance their everyday life and the lives of those closest to them, while minimizing the environmental impact of doing so.
All our ecopods are built in a fully enclosed facility until they are water-tight. This not only ensures higher quality product and longer-lasting tools and materials but creates a better working environment too.
Along with our attention to detail and build quality, we strive to offer a personal approach to our clients by working collaboratively to optimise our solution to each unique project.

We know that change is the only constant in life, but conventional building practice doesn’t reflect that old adage. Instead of allowing for flexibility in our building landscape, the convention is to build for an idealised nuclear family with a commuter lifestyle. This narrow profile doesn’t suit modern building needs which is why transportable and modular ecopods might just work for you.
We know more than ever that people are on the move and need affordable, architectural and adaptable spaces. All while minimising our collective impact on our precious planet. That’s what we aim to deliver here at Ecopod, working alongside our clients to achieve the lifestyles and livelihoods of their dreams.
Our transportable buildings are warm, energy and resource efficient, and we care about looking after our environment. We proudly deliver ecopods for community projects, medical clinics, social housing and worker’s accommodation as well as granny flats, rental and guest accommodation, office buildings and more. We can also work with you to achieve Homestar Green Building certification and LifeMark Universal Design certification for accessible buildings.
The streamlined prefabrication process we maintain along with attention to detail result in a fast, affordable and fit-for-purpose building. We deliver a complete solution so you don’t have to worry about unexpected costs and delays or having to live on a building site. Whether a space to live, work or play, our architecturally designed pods are built to your requirements.
