the earth centre
conference building
A pivotal sustainable building designed by ZEDfactory and structurally engineered by MLDE. The building has been built of almost 75% recycled materials and generates 60% of its own energy. The structural fabric of the building contributes considerably to its environmental performance. The thermally massive walls for example are created from recycled crushed concrete.
