Bringing the built environment
together to tackle the housing crisis
Futurebuild 2019 is uniting material manufacturers
and suppliers to make a pioneering solution to
solving the housing crisis a reality.
The ZEDgeneration initiative, started by Rani King MBE
and architect Bill Dunster OBE, ZED will enable sixth form
students to learn vital construction skills while building
affordable, energy-efficient, multi-occupancy homes.

of no net annual energy bills. A prototype is displayed
in the Buildings Hub at C52, before being erected on a
disused garage plot in Southend.
