An interesting event for the seven members there, looking at the development of the brownfield site of the old Pilkington’s Glass Works into a modern housing development, by Inland Homes, as part of the general regeneration of Poole Town.
A range of building methods were on show, including a chance to see wood-wool blocks in action, which we looked at in detail at one of our events a couple of years ago.
Next door to the site was an unexpected bonus, where a self-build project was in progress, using the same wood-wool blocks. The couple working there were kind enough to give us an impromptu tour of their two-thirds built luxury home, overlooking Poole Bay.
An informative and enjoyable evening for all.
