Case Study: Innovative Emergency Housing Solutions in London

Re-purposing the shipping container

Isoclad were approached by one of the largest property developers in the South East and asked for involvement on a quick build social housing programme using repurposed shipping containers – a trend that has recently taken off across the globe.

Councils throughout the country are continuously working to deliver accommodation that will enhance the safety and security of those most vulnerable, including, families, young adults and the elderly.

It’s difficult to predict the future of social housing, however, if we consider the current situation where a recorded 15,000 households in the latter quarter of 2016 were deemed homeless and more than 75,000 households living under the umbrella of temporary accommodation, there is a real necessity for homes now more than ever.

Innovative Emergency Housing Solutions

Isoclad worked flexibly to provide bespoke composite panels through our Customclad service to create an internal wall and ceiling solution while adhering to all current building regulations. The culture and ethos of how Isoclad work was invaluable to this particular project.

“This project would not have been achievable without the help from Isoclad’s design and technical department.”

The speed with which this kind of accommodation can be delivered was unique in itself because these innovative social housing apartments where built off-site and transported to West London to minimise disruption around the new residential site to a minimum.

The project utilised a total of 8850m2 of the Isoclad composite panel system and was installed by an appointed specialist modular building company.
