Skipping Girl Vinegar Vats Re-Purpose
This involved the conversion of the original Skipping Girl Vinegar factory in Northcote. The project is wholly sustainable on an number of levels. The Construction phase involved a zero waste policy, where no rubbish skips were allowed on site. Every material needed to be re-used, recycled or re-purposed. A number of sustainable practices were utilized in the build including, high performance windows, thermal mass, insulation, natural ventilation and shading. But beyond the environmental construction and design methods this project is overwhelmingly about changing the construction process. This project challenges the way we build things in a sustainable manner.
