© 2018 Urban Grow Pod.

At times we all need a place to think, a space for ideas to flourish, for minds to rest and for dreams to grow. The dedicated garden rooms we provide are environments like that, attached but detached from the main home, a space to escape to and thrive in.

 

There are many personal scenarios why an Urban Grow Pod could make sense, for us it was a lack of space in a home we didn’t want to move from which meant we could relocate the office to make way for a nursery, need solved in a way that has given us higher living quality along with more focus and productivity.

 

Urban Grow Pods have been designed as spaces that are flooded with natural light, made of high quality eco-friendly materials and modularly adaptable to become harmonious, inspiring long term additions to a home.

 

Our range of fixed price packages, add-on options as well as bespoke design services, makes us a sustainable solution to an urban need for more space.

 

We would love to hear from you to discuss options, book in a site visit or see how we can help you gain more space.

Window & Doors

Double glazed Aluminium windows and doors feel reassuringly solid to open and close, are maintenance free and efficient at insulating the building. Compared to the alternative glazing options Aluminum is more sustainable, longer lasting with an unrivalled feeling of quality.

Aluminium windows and doors are more secure than UPVC or timber and are customisable via a selection of RAL colours to personalize your Pod.

Eco Friendly

Engineered walls with a 21cm thickness draw on the same principles of construction that 300-year-old timber framed buildings adopt.

Eco friendly Sheep’s wool insulation takes far less energy to produce and naturally absorbs and releases moisture to act in harmony with a breathable timber frame construction.

Electrics Package

Our pods come with plenty of low profile double sockets, including a double socket with integrated USB charging. We have taken care to conceal the consumer unit with RCD breakers into a neatly designed wall compartment, high up and away from inquisitive children.

 

Adhering to part p our pods are installed and ready for connection to the mains by a qualified electrician.

Aluminium Roof

Our roofs are uniquely curved and highly practical with a 2mm thick aluminium plate, which will not perish, puncture or rust. Aluminium is widely used in far harsher arctic and marine environments thanks to its durability.

An aluminium roof will reflect heat so our pods will be cooler in the summer and more efficiently warm in the winter.

Low Maintenance

Aluminium is totally impervious to UV sunlight damage and the shear thickness of material means zero chance of accidental punctures or splits that could lead to costly water leaks. 

 

Our integrated aluminium guttering with matching down pipes will not perish or split.

Insulated – Ventilated - Distinctive - Long Term

Luxury Interiors

Inside we have lacquered birch paneling that provides a clean designer look whilst also being a practical load-bearing surface for shelving. A generous 18mm thickness adds even more solidity and security while considerably aiding sound absorption.

Our low profile insulated composite flooring design is supplied with electric underfloor heating and wide board engineered solid Oak floors, UV lacquered with 6mm wear layers.

Underfloor Heating

Heat rises so with underfloor heating we get the whole floor and room heated while with a radiator most of the heat is sent to the roof so you get cold feet, less comfort, inefficiency and higher heating bills. The space where the radiator is placed is also a wasted area in what could be a compact garden room.

The WarmUp upgrade package comes with a touch control thermostat.

Foundations Service

For any outbuilding to remain stable long term it will need a foundation to be fixed to and one that is robust such as the reinforced concrete pile foundations that we have developed.

 

Some customers already have a base or wish to provide one themselves so our service is an optional solution, we just require a level ground to work on.

Larch Cladding

We absolutely love Larch. It has a warm honey tone to the timber with a satisfying density that integrated into our design gives the cladding a striking look but also adds even more strength and rigidity to the whole structure.

For long term protection, we treat our timber with either a UV oil from Osmo or a preservative silvering accelerator that helps the timber gain a uniform aged effect within months not years.

This is a durable timber and aluminium construction that can shed water and breath offering long term performance.
