At Bobtrade, we are excited about the prospect of a greener and cleaner industry. Whether it means changing up our construction methods, changing the way we look at design or totally swapping our building materials, we can’t wait to see a sustainable future. So, to celebrate what has been a massive year for us at Bobtrade HQ we wanted to share with you some of our favourite developments in sustainability.
Sustainable construction is a massive subject. So we have had to dig deep and only choose a couple that we love and that we think you will really love to. So, without further delay, here is our list.
Stuttgart University Institute of Building Construction and Structural Design.
An incredible display of the capabilities of bioplastics in construction, the facade of the Stuttgart University Institute of Building Construction and Structural Design is made of a form of liquid wood known as Arboskin.
From amazing green construction materials to creative and sustainable buildings!
The Tall Wood Residence.
At 53 meters high, the Tall Wood Residence, is a fabulous timber tower which was built in the summer of 2017. Situated in Vancouver at the University of British Columbia, it is the tallest timber building constructed to date.
This building stores carbon dioxide, reducing the carbon footprint and making our world a much cleaner, better place to live in.
When sunlight hits the panels, filled with water and algae, photosynthesis triggers the microorganisms to multiply and give off heat. The energy from this process is then harnessed to power the building or store underground.
