Interim use

QED is passionate about bringing disused or underutilised land back into viable use and we are investing in pilot projects that test the viability of our thinking.

Our award-winning shipping container pilot scheme for the Brighton Housing Trust is the first moveable accommodation scheme of its kind – providing much needed ‘move-on’ accommodation in the city.

Taking lessons learned from this and other projects, QED is continuing to find ways to exploit empty spaces and reusable buildings – whether its shipping containers or off-site, modular units – creating value through short-term land use with building blocks that can be moved and re-used again and again.

"Once you recognise that land in limbo is a resource, an asset rather than a liability, then actually it’s inexcusable to simply be in denial about it and do nothing about it"
