THE FUTURE OF HOUSING
Affordable | Sustainable

A blockchain based platform for developing sustainable homes, resilient neighbourhoods and livable smart cities. 

the ehab neighbourhood

Sustainable

Energy-positive design used to minimise household bills. Renewable technologies deployed to generate electricity. Deploy mechanical ventilation for occupant health and to save energy.

Community-focused

Design & amenities shaped by its inhabitants. Open spaces designated for sharing, with spaces for children to play in and for people to be relaxed with each other in.

Attainable

Lower cost technology, such as modular or off site manufacturing methods can pass savings to the home buyer. Unique, flexible shared ownership schemes allow anyone who wants an Ehab home to have access to one.

Tech-enabled

Smart meters used to measure energy usage. Using other connected devices, like smart speakers, lights and thermostats to give the best home experience.

Green infrastructure

Plenty of trees, planted areas and grass to provide shade in summer and places to relax. The ability to grow hyper local food is available to everyone in the neighbourhood.   

A neighbourhood designed for the 21st century should empower the people living there to flourish. We want people to take ownership of their community by being part of it from the beginning, collective choices made for shared space and unique variatiosn for each home. Greenspace should be prioritised, as healthy greenspaces are where communities meet and mingle. Having access to this space on your doorstep is also linked to good physical and mental wellbeing. Working with the best digitally connected tools can help everyone cut costs and bring our imagination to life. Finally, any new neighbourhood should be environmentally sustainable in the long term, to minimise our impacts on the planet and ensure future communities can flourish.

why are we doing this?

the ehab vision

These types of developments will not happen on their own. It requires significant collaboration between many different innovative organisations and funders to get projects off the ground in significant numbers and to make good returns.
The technology to achieve all this and more is here today, we just need a replicable pathway to follow. That’s where ehab comes in, acting as the digital automated facilitator to bring this type of home, neighbourhood and city, to the mainstream.  

our tech

These are some of the key pieces of the puzzle 

Smart Contracts

Standardised smart contracts are used to speed up JV formation and then automate payments between the various project stakeholders. They are also used throughout the project to track events and milestones to create admin efficiencies and cut project delays and costs.

People Powered

Interactive engagement tools are used to ensure voices are heard and people can take part in the process. The subsequent designs can be seen in 3D in real time and can continue to have comments made to iterate the finer details.

Tokenised Ownership

Each project and property will be represented with digital shares. This can create a variety of highly flexible ownership structures, whilst also allowing investors much greater liquidity when investing into projects.

Blockchain Technology

This is a tool to track project development and ensure reality on the ground matches the shared digital reality on the platform. By recording and verifying information here, a permanent record can be kept, speeding up due diligence with each new project.
