In January 2021, residents moved into the first Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) development of its kind to be completed in the UK. This award winning affordable housing scheme; Hope Rise, is a partnership between ZED PODS and Bristol City Council, supported by Bristol Housing Festival and YMCA Bristol. It combines an innovative development with an environmental conscience. It consists of a community of 11 zero carbon, modular starter homes. Located in St George, Bristol these homes are the first to be constructed on a platform above a car park.
