Smartpods offer a versatile and customizable space solution for a variety of applications, including education, retail, leisure, and business. We appreciate that purchasing your modular building can seem a bit daunting and so we’ve written this article to answer all of the most frequently asked questions we receive. If you still have further questions then please don’t hesitate to contact us and a member of our team will be glad to help.

For ease, below are our most commonly asked questions, which will jump to that answer when clicked.

Q. Can I choose my own external and internal finishes?

Absolutely! Our packages (including finishes) can be totally customised to suit your preferences. At Smartpod, we understand that each client has unique tastes, requirements and branding guidelines to adhere to. This customisation option allows you to create a space that reflects your personal style or brand identity. Whether you prefer a modern minimalist look with sleek lines and neutral colours or a more traditional aesthetic with warm, earthy tones, we have a variety of materials and finishes to choose from.

Our design team is available to assist you in selecting the best materials for both the exterior and interior of your Smartpod. For the exterior, you might opt for durable, weather-resistant cladding, while for the interior, choices range from high-quality laminates to luxurious hardwoods. We also offer a variety of flooring options, including carpet, and vinyl, to ensure that your Smartpod not only looks good but also meets your functional needs.

In addition to aesthetic customisation, we can also tailor the Smartpod’s features to suit specific uses. For instance, if your Smartpod will serve as a retail space, we can include built-in shelving and display areas. For educational purposes, we can incorporate interactive whiteboards and ergonomic seating etc. The flexibility of our design options means that your Smartpod will be a perfect fit for its intended purpose.

Q. Will my Smartpod be delivered already assembled?

Yes, we aim to deliver your Smartpod fully-assembled. This approach minimises disruption at your site and allows you to start using your new space almost immediately. However, we understand that site conditions can vary, and access challenges might arise. In such cases, we offer alternative solutions to ensure a smooth installation process.

If full assembly is not feasible due to restricted access or other site-specific issues, we can deliver the Smartpod in sections and build on-site. Our skilled installation team will then complete the assembly on-site, ensuring that every detail meets our high standards of quality and craftsmanship. This flexibility in delivery and installation means that even if your site has limited space or challenging terrain, we can still provide you with a fully functional Smartpod.

Our installation process is designed to be as efficient and non-disruptive as possible. We handle all aspects of the setup, including installation on either hard or uneven surfaces if required – so you can focus on enjoying your new space as soon as possible. Our team is experienced in working with a variety of site conditions and will ensure that your Smartpod is perfectly level and securely anchored.

Q. How soon can I have my Smartpod after ordering?

From order confirmation and receipt of a deposit, we aim to have your Smartpod delivered to you within 8 to 10 weeks. This rapid turnaround time is possible because our Smartpods are designed and manufactured in the UK using a streamlined production process. By handling everything in-house, from initial consultation to final installation, we maintain tight control over quality and scheduling.

Our process begins with a detailed consultation to understand your specific needs and preferences. We then conduct a site survey, if necessary, to ensure that we can accommodate any unique site conditions. Once the design and specifications are agreed upon, we move forward with manufacturing. Our skilled team constructs your Smartpod using high-quality materials and advanced building techniques.

The final step is delivery and installation, which is completed by the same team that built your Smartpod. This continuity ensures that the installation is done correctly and efficiently. We aim to make the entire process as seamless as possible, providing you with a hassle-free experience from start to finish.

Q. Can my Smartpod be installed on any surface?

Yes! A hardstanding surface is easiest, but if we’re installing on grass, we’ll use our ground screws, which it sits on. We can also work around sloped surfaces to ensure your Smartpod is perfectly level. This adaptability makes Smartpods an excellent choice for a variety of locations and uses.

Hardstanding surfaces, such as concrete or asphalt, provide a stable base for the Smartpod and are the quickest and simplest option for installation. However, we recognise that many clients may want to place their Smartpod in more natural settings, such as gardens, parks, fields, or other green spaces. For these installations, we use specialised ground screws that anchor the Smartpod securely while minimising disruption to the surrounding environment.

These ground screws are particularly beneficial for installations on uneven or sloped terrain. They allow us to adjust the height and angle of the Smartpod, ensuring that it is level and stable. This capability means that even sites with significant grade changes or irregular surfaces can accommodate a Smartpod without the need for extensive ground preparation. It’s also an environmentally friendly option should you ever need to relocate your pod, since it allows us to easily remove the pod and ground screws, allowing the ground beneath to return to its natural state.

Our installation team is experienced in working with various site conditions and will ensure that your Smartpod is securely anchored and properly levelled. We take great care to ensure that the installation process is minimally invasive, preserving the natural beauty of your site while providing stability for your Smartpod.
