New Project House Development
SOFI’s World Centre for Innovation and Applied Technology has begun the built of a new project-house which will demonstrate ecological building and applied technology to the local community. It will include innovative and creative ecological building techniques, a compost toilet, solar PV, solar water heating, biogas and working with recycling such as glass, plastics and ‘waste’ materials
To share experience and skills, and to raise young people’s awareness and increase skills around ecological building, we are working together with students from the local polytechnic school, who are doing their attachment on site. This will not only give them an unique working experience, but will also hopefully raise their interest in using similar more environmentally sound building techniques that will increase natural ventilation, climate control, and that makes use of locally available and abundant materials.
