The CobBauge Building Open Day
  • Opposite the Sustainability Hub, Kirkby Lodge, University of Plymouth

Save event

The construction of the CobBauge Building on the University of Plymouth campus – made from the centuries-old material of cob – is almost complete and the CobBauge team would like to invite anyone interested in sustainable, net zero carbon builds to come and visit the building at this open day event.

The building, part of the Sustainable Earth Institute, is the first of its kind in the UK and was designed by Fox Ecological Architects. The facility is part of a multi-million pound, cross-Channel project that is investigating whether cob can become a sustainable solution for a new generation of energy-efficient housing. The single-storey building will act as a classroom and research laboratory as the project team will monitor the performance of its materials, as well as demonstrating it to future house designers and builders.

Scheduled sessions will run throughout the day with hourly guided tours from the CobBauge team at 10:30, 12:00, 13:30 and 15:00. Presentations, samples of the material and training videos will be available along with the opportunity to talk with the team and other attendees interested in sustainable builds and the future of net zero carbon housing.

Come and talk to the experts and enjoy an exhibition of our progress. 

Please contact cobbauge@plymouth.ac.uk to secure a place for the tour.
