2nd Whalley Range Scout Hut
A very ambitious project to support this intrepid Scout troop to construct their new permanent home. Within a tight budget we have designed a scheme that utilises WikiHouse to devolve as much responsibity to the users and will allow them to get deeply involved in the construction. The building will be one of the largest single WikiHouse structures in the world (also with some of the largest spans) and unlike other large scale WikiHouse productions will be Client led. This is a hugely exciting project for us and we hope to begin construction in Summer 2019. More information and pictures to follow.
Update 02.06.19: So excited to announce that the Scout Hut will be starting on site 24 June 2019 and with the farewell and demolition of the existing huts. Our construction partners have a five week programme to prepare the foundations and services before the WikiHouse elements begin on 27 July with the Big Hut Build! All welcome regardless of age, experience or ability, volunteers please email us for further information. See you there. Further pictures of the WikiHouse fabrication files to follow!
Update 14.10.19: Well that blew by! The construction of the UK's largest single WikiHouse structure is now completd and fit out and finishing is underway. What an incredible process to watch the Scouts, their parents, neighbours, friends, families and lots of volunteers put this scheme together. Constructed from assorted loose pieces but quickly becoming an insulated waterproofed shell, the WikiHouse build period lasted just 21 days. Further updates/photos to follow as we progress towards completion!
