Leisure Technique are progressing well at Here East situated in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.
Along with a video about making the Pods
They are using the pioneering WIKI house design
Initially a prototype was sent, made up of interlocking 18mm WISA Spruce plywood to form very sturdy walls, roof, floor and columns
Below is a selection of progress pictures…………….
With a total of 8 CNC machines here at Leisure techniques we are able to keep up with demands
With approximately 6,300 sheets of 18mm plywood and a further 1,300 sheets of Garnica Fireshield 5mm plywood being machined, to well over a 1000 differing components at our factory a keen eye on correct palletisation has to be maintained as they are shipped to site in a house by house kit format, with a total of 21 houses coming in 5 variations and 2x toilet blocks.
