Sustainable Construction

PROJECT OVERVIEW: Sustainable Construction is a start up company with the aim of allowing self builders to build a eco-friendly home for life in two stages. It provides a platform that can easily have additional energy saving measures and improvements made to the building fabric as technology and materials develop overtime and the client can afford them. CREST@UCS were contacted to help develop the business concept more fully.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES: Support was required to conduct research into sustainable resources and materials, including land to build on. Sustainable Construction also required support to develop the business case, marketing materials and potential product launch.

PROJECT SOLUTIONS: CREST@UCS supported Sustainable Construction with knowledge transfer through attendance of one of our fully funded events. We worked with Shropshire Council to secure some land on which to develop a self build prototype.
