Project Living Building
Project living building is a Biohm initiative that stemmed from a clear need for significant change in the construction industry and our perceptions of the built environment. The idea is to create healthy, sustainable and affordable buildings that are scalable, and not limited to one-off projects, which embraces the circular economy to produce and reuse everything that the inhabitants need.
We are working on the water management side, using our knowledge and technology to treat the wastewater onsite so it can be reused within the building. The system will generate biogas from the household waste that can be used to provide heating and electricity to the household reducing the carbon footprint. The nutrients in the wastewater are a natural fertiliser for the plants, creating an entirely circular system where all waste is reused.
