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"
