Our work is our passion, and as a team, we are committed to creating beautiful, bespoke, and sustainable Garden Buildings for our customers
We are a premium garden room manufacturer, specialising in fully bespoke luxurious steel frame garden rooms which are built to feel like a 'disconnected extension' of your home. We believe that our customers deserve the best, therefore we only use the highest performing materials on our builds. We support clients from concept, through planning, design and build, to final decoration.
Whether you are looking to create the ultimate garden gym or a sophisticated garden office you can rest assured that you are dealing with the right company.
Although a relatively young company the Directors of OffPOD (Chris Willis, Thomas Ihuarula, Alex Hall, Christopher Wood & Aaron Hulston) have over 70 years of combined experience across Law, Business Development, Engineering & Building; creating one of the most well-rounded teams in the industry.
A shared core value between all of the directors is that we treat our customers ‘BETTER’ than how we would wish to be treated if in their shoes. Our aim is to underpromise and over-deliver wherever possible ensuring that we never let our clients down. With a huge emphasis on exceptional quality and an unmatched level of customer service, we have created a business whereby the process of having a Garden Room, Annex or Extension built is as enjoyable as the final product, not to mention two to three times faster by utilising modular building methods.
The Birth of OffPOD
Chris & Tom in the past had both endured complete house renovations and extensions carried out via a host of different companies and tradesmen. They were shocked and disappointed by the quality of work carried out and the sheer lack of inconsistency in relation to timescales quoted, changing prices and lack of communication. Both experienced days when workers simply wouldn’t turn up without any warning, days without calls being returned, tradesman starting at 9 am and leaving the job before lunchtime, work taking 4-5 times longer than initially quoted and snags or issues not being rectified once the balance had been paid What was even more surprising for them both was the fact that so many other people they spoke to were having similar issues. It became apparent that all of the issues they experienced were commonplace even when having work carried out by friends or referrals! Having looked into this they discovered that the industry was pretty much unregulated and as a result pretty much comes down to luck in terms of whom you have carried out the work unless you have a referral etc. In an attempt to change this culture OffPOD was born
Tom and Chris were also aware that even the initial timescales quoted for work to be completed seemed pretty slow and cumbersome so researched what other options were out there other than traditional build methods. This is when they discovered the steel frame modular build systems that do not only do they want to offer an improved product with a high level of customer service but they aimed at bringing change to the industry by utilising emerging modern building methods which bring about the same outcome but a hell of a lot faster.
Having grown tired of unreliable tradesmen and traditional build methods OffPOD was established to disrupt the construction industry; For too long customers have accepted compromises on timelines, price, and quality. We want property development to be exciting rather than terrifying and no customer should have their life’s investment or latest venture held to ransom. Our customer journey is as impressive as our builds; “Be genuine. Be remarkable. Be worth connecting with.”
