Made from 90% recycled and reused material sourced from the Olympic Park and surrounding areas Cre8 is building a passive, off-grid Eco Ship. It is a self build using a volunteer work force, mentored by experts in sustainable design.
Our experts will share skills and knowledge that can be used by volunteers to replicate this community building template. When complete it will be a benchmark model of eco living and self building. The Arc will be used by the public all year round as a show case for environmentalism, permaculture, self builds and volunteering.
We need volunteers, commercial partners and sponsors whose aims and objectives are aligned to the sustainable design movement. We have 20% of the funds we need so far but still need more. Balfour Beatty will be running an apprentice programme training young people in eco construction. So, get involved and learn how to build your own eco house. Building has already started!
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Do you want to learn how to build your own environmentally home?
Become part of London's first off grid passive house called Cre8 Community Hub.
Built by the community, for the community, the Eco Hub will become a template for innovation in sustainable design and community engagement.
Our mission is to guide a local volunteer network through the build by imparting skills and knowledge relating to sustainable development. When it is built, the local community will be invited to manage and curate the garden. Workshops will be also be delivered by eco experts.
We will use recycled, reclaimed and reusable materials. The aim is to create a Zero energy environment for every one to enjoy all year round!
Your help is key to our success!
With your help we can continue on the road to building a truly innovative and community-led beacon to sustainable design.
Steps to get it done:
The aim of the project is to use the latest techniques in sustainable urban design. Through skill sharing and co-operative building the Cre8 Community Hub will become a template for sustainable design and community engagement.
