    We’re proud to be sponsoring the Mahakirau Forest Conservation project with a bespoke M-Pod for their new community hub! This will act as a base for field workers, researchers and education on this 600Ha Coromandel conservation estate. It’s a truly stunning project.

    Help them fundraise their last bit for the startup costs of the project if you can! Their GiveALittle page can be found here:

    https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/help-us-build-a-field-base-or-community-hub

    To be able to manage, and accelerate, the work they’re doing, they have secured the necessary resource consent, and are well advanced in building a small Field Base Community Hub with a meeting/learning space in one container; short term accommodation space in a modular Ecopod for researchers to stay; and a storage facility/tool library in a second container.

    Over 80% of the funds they need have been raised from funders like NZ Lotteries; Trust Waikato, QEII National Trust, Pub Charity and even the proceeds of two cake stalls from our local early learning centre, Riverlee!

    This week we’ve started with floor and wall framing, and figuring out the practicalities of installing a dehydrating compost toilet, too!

    We’re looking forward to

    This is like our C1 Pod dwelling. Talk to us about passive solar design and Homestar rating for your next ecopod project.

    HEYLEY PROJECT || Located beachside on Phillip Island Victoria, the Heyley project has nestled beautifully into its natural setting. Adopting passive solar principles and maximising the site orientation the home achieves a 7-star energy rating. ⁠

    Two sustainably built modules envelope three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an open living area with freestanding fireplace. The beach home occupies a minimal footprint, but still offers maximum flexibility for a young family to enjoy a relaxing coastal escape. ⁠

    Our friends over at @modular_buildings_australia have developed this concept kiosk pod. We’d love to do something similar if anyone wants to set up a transportable business serving the people!
