The Built Collective


We have a twenty year old, 3000m2 steel factory built behind the original c.1875 façade.

Our aim is to cover that roof with enough solar panels to power the site. In August 2018 we installed a 100kW solar system (355 panels) which powers approximately one third of the site. In March 2020 we installed the next 100kW system.

We also plan to harvest the water, when it rains, to feed into the site’s domestic water requirements. We have installed the first of a number of water tanks for this purpose.

Waste generated on site is sorted into rubbish, co-mingled (plastics and bottles) and cardboard and paper and recycled accordingly.

There are no chemical products used on our gardens – we use organic weed killer on site.
