Dwelle constructed one of their micro-homes for the North’s largest sustainable building event, Greenbuild Expo.
The “Home Dwelle.ing” was constructed inside Manchester Central over two days and then moved three miles away to a site in Rusholme to become a showroom for the building system and a centre for carbon literacy.
Ric, Dwelle’s Managing Director explained: “We erected the main structure of the building and fitted it out over two days in the exhibition hall, then presented it on the third day when the show opened. As well as showcasing the design, the components and materials used it was also promoting it’s future launch as a centre for carbon literacy.
“We then removed the roof section and lifted the entire build on to a low loader and took it down the road to a new home opposite Platt Fields in Rusholme.”
Eastlands Homes and Cooler Projects CIC will develop a programme to assist residents to understand how to reduce their energy and carbon footprint. They are currently modernising six of their towers to make them more energy efficient and want to empower their residents – as part of their move to meet their Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC).
Home Dwelle.ing will be the centre for this new initiative located adjacent to Platt and Worsley Courts in Rusholme – managed by Eastlands Homes.
