A sojourn in a PurePod is a unique lifestyle experience Stephanie Hassall, CEO of PurePods says. The twin goals of the company are to have the smallest ecological footprint possible, while providing luxury and 360-degree views.
Located in secluded private locations around the country, the simple PurePod is providing just that.
The PurePod design is an innovative and intentional design that is all prefabricated before being shipped to the final site.
Materials include, Techlam Glulam structure, Glass walls, floor and roof, and a unique in-floor heating system.
The Techlam Glulam Visual Appearance beams are used for the main structural elements, providing a sustainable, durable and appealing product for each PurePod to be constructed from. New Zealand radiata pine is used to manufacture the beams and being able to count the carbon figures with their carbon ‘nutrition labels’ is a sure way to be able to measure the impact of each PurePod.
With all the timber being prefabricated in their plant, Techlam are reducing construction waste and providing a full solution including hardware for the construction phase.
PurePod is built to patented specifications including triple glazed glass, remote operational management, automated windows, bio-fuel capable heating, eco-friendly, off-grid, low maintenance sewage system, patented underfloor heating, designer kitchen and bathroom facilities, and “the comfiest bed they could find”. As a result of the extensive research and development, each PurePod is actually more environmentally friendly than traditional camping.
An advanced company that utilises timber and other local materials to provide a five-star experience with little to no environmental impact, letting the amazing views of our country do the talking.
