The WISER LIFE Project was officially launched on Monday March 14th, as the sod was turned at the Ballymun Boiler House site. The WISER LIFE Project will see the transformation of the iconic building into a 3-D textbook, an innovative architectural prototype in educational space design.
The re-purposing of the Ballymun Boiler House, as part of the WISER (working with industrial spaces to exemplify reuse) LIFE Project, will establish Europe’s first 3-D textbook as a centre for excellence in education for sustainable development highlighting best practice reuse and resource efficiency. This new approach to educational space design demonstrates the ability to incorporate active learning through building design, construction, operation and occupation.
The plan for the building involves its reinvention as an innovative learning space showcasing best practice eco-design, construction and material use. The building will be constructed using recycled materials, with energy and water systems designed to conserve precious resources and demonstrate the latest research with regard to environmental sustainability. The centre will deliver targeted environmental workshops and education programmes for all ages and provide green services and products created on-site by waste reuse eco-enterprises. Read More>>
