ZED PODS receives King’s Award for Enterprise

ZED PODS has been honoured with a King’s Award for Enterprise for Sustainable Development.

ZED PODS is one of 252 organisations nationally to be recognised with a prestigious King’s Award for Enterprise. Announced on Monday 6th May, ZED PODS has been recognised for its excellence in the Sustainable Development award category for pushing the boundaries of sustainability in design, location, land use and social inclusion for the UK public sector. A total of 257 Awards are made with five companies being recognised with two Awards.

ZED PODS was founded by its Chairman in 2016. The organisation’s architects, engineers and operational team are leading the way in designing and building zero operational carbon social housing. The company’s modular homes are unlocking constrained brownfield land including derelict garage sites, carparks and Flood Zones. ZED PODS has a significant pipeline and is bringing sustainable development projects into fruition for local authorities and housing associations by using volumetric construction methodology.

Tom Northway, Chairman of ZED PODS, said: “We are delighted to receive this prestigious award as sustainability is at the core of everything we do. By working in close partnership with public sector clients we are helping them to tackle both climate and affordable housing crises, whilst helping the most vulnerable people in our society.”

The King’s Awards for Enterprise, previously known as The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, were renamed last year to reflect His Majesty The King’s desire to continue the legacy of HM Queen Elizabeth II by recognising outstanding UK businesses. The Award programme is now in its 58th year and successful businesses are able to use the esteemed King’s Awards Emblem for the next five years.

Applications for King’s Awards for Enterprise 2025 opened on His Majesty The King’s Coronation, 6th May 2024. For more information, visit www.gov.uk/kings-awards-for-enterprise
