Useful Simple Trust is in a shortlisted team with igloo Regeneration and architects Mawson Kerr as one of six teams out of 200 entries for the Home of 2030 competition.

The competition was launched by the Government earlier this year to drive innovation in the provision of affordable, efficient and healthy green homes for all.

Our shortlisted entry called +Home

  • helps communities to build green, walkable, vibrant neighbourhoods themselves, bypassing traditional housebuilders.
  • proposes community-led and self-build homes that people can design themselves.
  • creates homes are simple to build, with flexible, affordable frames and components, and are climate friendly to build and run.

Expedition are providing engineering design alongside our sister company Useful Projects to deliver a collaborative sustainability service.

Our senior director Judith said “To meet national carbon targets we need to be building new homes today that go beyond net zero. In the +Home of 2030 residents become energy generators. And it’s not just operational energy that we have tackled. Our manufacturing method is founded on circular economy principles to minimise embedded upfront and lifecycle impacts. We are looking forwarded to demonstrating how +Home can be delivered at scale.”
