New Learning Centre
A New Future
We are embarking on an exciting project which will mark the beginning of a new era.
This project will completely transform our tired, old, inefficient MoD building into an eco-friendly, state-of-the-art learning centre. This will provide . . .
It will be an exemplar eco-retrofit project inspiring others to re-use and totally transform existing buildings – especially institutional and commercial - rather than merely knocking them down and starting again. This project will demonstrate that this approach is both eco-friendly and cost-effective, with materials sourced as locally as possible.
It will compliment the retrofit of Wetherdown Lodge which demonstrates a ‘cheap and cheerful approach’ (yet still very effective way) to building re-use.
We intend to maximise the learning opportunities within the project by creating hands-on experiences, workshops and apprenticeships as well as creating tools and tutorials to aid extending the learning beyond the project timeline.
Our charity’s mission is to demonstrate, develop and promote knowledge skills, technologies to foster practical sustainable living. The New Learning Centre will support our mission, ethos and values.
