  1. We are currently working on a project to convert shipping containers in to low cost social housing – once converted our plan is to lease the containers to Councils, Charities and Housing Associations etc for low cost housing similar to the Brighton container housing project. We had a couple of 20Ft shipping containers left over from another project and converted them in to small student pods that that have rented out at low cost, the students love them. We are now looking to raise the money to build more; we are looking at building a crowdfunding platform to get this off the ground.
