Working with our sister company Useful Simple Projects, we were appointed by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Municipality of Sao Paulo to provide engineering design advice to this 4000 home social housing development. The development will provide much needed homes for communities currently living in dwellings with a high risk of collapse or flooding.
Our role was to develop infrastructure strategies to support a sustainable community. This included:
- Advice on transit orientated design principles;
- Energy efficiency and options for renewable energy;
- Sustainable drainage solutions; and
- Advice on off-site manufacture for construction
