Entry Description

Buying real estate is a major decision in our life and it takes lots of careful consideration. What if you can alter your home flexibly or even dismantle it and move it to a new spot easily? This is the idea behind ALPOD – prefab modular aluminium construction units that are mobile, durable and stylish. Like building blocks, you can stack up several ALPOD to create a multi-storey home. Or use it as an office, an exhibition booth, or a popup shop. It is lightweight, sturdy and easy to install and take down. It is also resistant to wind, fire, heat and earthquake, with a lifespan of 50 years.
