This “dwelle.ing” is a showcase for the building system and its components, which we sell supplied and built including fixtures and fittings. It will also become a Centre for Carbon Literacy with support from Eastlands Homes & Cooler CIC. It will demonstrate how careful design and specification can provide a huge number of benefits in modern low carbon living.
The launch followed the public launch of Manchester Carbon Literacy at 10.30am in Exchange Court, Manchester Arndale (the dwelle.ing being the first Centre for Carbon Literacy).
With support from The Casey Group Ltd, this new structure was constructed in Manchester Central for Greenbuild EXPO in June 2011. It was then driven 3 miles down the road on a low-loader and craned onto its new site opposite Platt Fields in Rusholme. Although the typical build time for a dwelle.ing is 8 weeks, this project has been used to test some of the new construction techniques and components.
