The ribbon has been cut and we are off and racing! The Innovation House is under way (woohoo!) Today is a very exciting milestone for all of us involved in the project.
Week 1 has kicked off with building essentials 101 commencing. Trenches, plumbing, and the slab. We’re using a new type of concrete in slab for Innovation House called Envirocrete. It’s a part recycled product that decreases our carbon emissions impact. So it makes us feel good, and is good for the environment too!
We also launched the Innovation House project by hosting a media release at the house. Darren, along with Lisa Kayrooz (Ergon Energy), Mark Robinson (Townsville City Council), Michael Cook and Morten Moxnes (James Cook University Honour Students) were in attendance to speak with the media about the project and our aims.
