Responsible Design

Groundwork’s in-house Chartered Landscape Architects worked with Start Creative in Salford to develop a sustainable building design for The Meeting Place.

Together they converted ambitious aspirations into a viable design which could then be implemented by Start Creative, supported by corporate partners Mace.

The following features at The Meeting Place have been considered with sustainable design in mind:

  • Wooden frame design with natural thermal insulating properties.
  • Locally sourced timber from social enterprise The Tree Station or sourced directly from Trafford Ecology Park.
  • Roof tiles made from recycled plastic.
  • Rainwater harvesting system installed; storing and reusing rainwater instead of allowing run-off.
  • Energy generated from solar panels on the roof.
