Projects and Innovations
Through our origins in the ground-breaking Green Business Network, we have always been drawn to clients with unusual ideas and projects. Over the past few years for example we have delivered a fish farm educational project on a bus for a School in Rotherham, an aquaponics hub (local food eco-building) at Todmorden High School, and a wildlife observation hide in the Yorkshire Dales with a sloping grass roof grazed by sheep.
We are always happy to talk with clients and customers about their schemes no matter how quirky, especially if they involve exciting ways we can incorporate recycled, renewable and sustainable products and materials.
This is not to say we are not involved with familiar and conventional products and projects but needless to say, at GFB we strive to deliver everything with the minimum carbon footprint and environmental impact.
We continually re-design and re-develop our product range often pioneering the inclusion of innovative recycled materials such as boards made from recycled plastic and next generation cladding. We are always on the hunt for new and sustainable products that can help us manufacture our conservation range as ethically as possible.
Keep an eye out in our news section for updates on projects e.g. involving our newly acquired Brick Press, which makes bricks suitable for the outer skin of a building from waste substrate on site. We are excited about the huge potential applications for these bricks and already have a couple of projects lined up to get us started.
New Year 2017 saw a hive of activity at Teifi Marsh, Cardigan installing two bespoke bird hides at one of the best wetland reserves in Wales!The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales chose to team up with Green Future Building - a repeat customer.
GFB Help one of the World’s Rarest Seabirds! Roseate Terns are one of our most graceful birds and one of our rarest.They nest on only a small number of offshore islands in the UK. In the late 19th century, these birds were hunted for their plumes which were used to decorate hats. More recently, their numbers have decreased in some regions due to increased competition and predation by large gulls, whose numbers have increased in recent times.
