Sustainable Building and Renewable Energy

Our ethos of ‘learning for a sustainable life’ starts at the heart of Carymoor - our Eco-Centre.  Built in 2000 using green-building methods the centre has developed to incorporate many different sustainable features.  Your students will be able to explore the overall design of the building, the different types of building materials, the generation of renewable electricity and heat, the capture of rainwater for recycling, and the treatment of sewage waste.  In addition to the main building we also have a strawbale building, a hemp-crete shed, and a replica iron-age roundhouse to explore.
