P.O.D. Private Of-grid Development System solution
Product quality. The overall design for the P.O.D. System was develop using organic/biologic materials and resins offering a healthy, high quality and comfortable habitat for any lifestyle. Viability is maintained with the habitat functions, solar power generation, water filtering/storage and biogas units for waste.
Delivery rapidity. P.O.D. System deliver the solution for transportation with the use of the existing logistic infrastructure, when folded P.O.D.’s become container type structure friendly to the logistic network and can be delivered anywhere on Earth via Boat, Railways and road, a must when addressing rapid response to loss of habitat due to environmental or social emergency.
Adapted to function. Earth living environments, from Desert to Mountain and Ocean Shore to Steps, Human are present in all environment Earth offer. To sustain life in most of these environments habitat needs to be adapted to offer basic living support. P.O.D. System is fully adaptable to any environment and terrain. The building process of the shell demand 1 weeks and can extend to 1 month according to Environment types and Function specifics.
Cost efficient. The process of building/manufacturing and the use of modern tech provide with a strong cost for value for customers and deliver satisfactory margin to sustain business. The goal is to support continuous R&D in order to enhance both, quality and effectiveness to customers.
Carbon neutral. The design embraces environmental demands. 100% of each P.O.D. is recyclable and reusable. The building footprint is neutral and each component have been selected accordingly to the Carbon Neutral standard.
Sustainable. The ability to sustain Life in a time of exponential changes while maintaining viability is a key point of modern remote and of-grid housing design. The solution P.O.D. System provides is matching market demand in sustainable habitat, thanks to a resources base R&D and a growing demand in modern construction materials. Sustainability is match from design to function.
P.O.D. – Private Of-Grid Development – Concept Overview
P.O.D.’s system solution is a modern approach to Housing growing market demands. The concept is base on accessibility & transportability. Accessible in pricing and timing of manufacturing/delivery, and transportability is in its design concept. A set of foldable/retractable panels volumes contain within a shapelike container space and creating the surrounding walls and interior separation of the habitat when unfolded. When folded the floors form a transportable industrial standard container. P.O.D. or Private Of-grid Development, propose a niche service to the Housing market. It can supply all types of demands in the prefabricated Housing segment worldwide, thanks to the special attention given to the technical parts of the panel’s volume.
The concept came to fruition following a reflection on movable/modulable habitat, and taking in consideration existing workforce and logistic capacity. 100m2 of transportable, modulable, sustainable and habitable functional living space made possible by the concept design applied and the building functions of each panels. Materials for main frame can be sourced worldwide and interior composition can be selected at order. Distribution takes place along the existing Housing market services and selected regional Architects.
The number of people, worldwide, affected by No Habitat or loss of habitat, from Environmental Refugees caught in intensifying Weather patterns rise to over a 100 million in 2018, Human’s living in slums environments grew from 700 million in 1990 to 880 million in 2014 over passing 900 million in 2018, and will expand further. In Africa, India, South America and China, a quarter of the population leave in “SLUM;s” environment, P.O.D.’s design can provide an alternative solution.
Vision and value proposition
P.O.D.’s or Private Ofgrid Development system, offers an efficient and sustainable solution to the growing demand of prefab housing, a large segment of the world housing market demand.
P.O.D. System Design was made possible under the IOCP incubators and presents a strong opportunity in the relief and remote housing service.
