The buildings include a new training centre and a two-storey residential/ hub building built by Down to Earth with young volunteers. The construction uses environmentally friendly methods throughout including locally sourced timber in a variety of forms, including round wood frame with a reciprocal roof as well as fabricated engineered I-joists.
