Torfaen EcoBuilding, Wales.
The brief asked for a sustainable building that would promote innovation and sustainable building methods; not only through the activities that would take place within once it had been completed, but also through the ways the building itself has been designed.
A documented audit trail, produced in collaboration with the BRE, tracks the demolition materials of the previous building on site and monitors their re-use. All materials where selected for their locality to the project, aiming to reduce the amount of design miles the various components will travel to site.
As result of its pre-fabricated design, the building can be de-mounted for re-location to alternative sites around the country as a traveling demonstration project.
