A brand new innovative emergency accommodation development opened at Marston Courts in Ealing, London, in early April 

London’s housing crisis has been well documented as demand continues to out-strip supply. As a consequence more and more innovative solutions are being developed.

The first of its kind in London, Marston Court, has been created in partnership with Ealing Council in the UK and is an innovative response to housing supply problems in the borough. It is a 34-apartment development created using a kit of moveable and re-usable parts, based around re-purposed shipping containers, offering a sustainable, robust, affordable, and flexible solution to short-term accommodation. 

The development on Bordars Walk, Ealing, is located on a previously disused brownfield site that has been brought back into productivity for the benefit the local community, offering a sustainable, robust, affordable, and flexible solution to short-term accommodation. 

The development will accommodate up to 72 individuals and is comprised of four pavilions, over two and three storeys, with 34 secure, ready to move in fully furnished apartments, a management office, laundry facilities, refuse storage, and landscaped open outside spaces and a play area for children. There 10 studio apartments, 16 one-bed, and eight two-bed apartments.

Marston Court is a joint development by QED Sustainable Urban Developments and social housing repairs and maintenance provider Mears Group. CargoTek, a specialist supplier of sustainable and flexible spaces, provided the modular accommodation.
