About This Live Project

Sheffield Homes is an Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO) set up and owned by Sheffield City Council to manage council housing in Sheffield. As our client, Sheffield Homes offered us a list of potential project briefs for us to choose from, all of which deal with important issues and concerns regarding the current council housing stock in Sheffield. Our group decided to embark upon developing innovative solutions to address the important issue of waste disposal in flatted council estates. Our hope is that our efforts can offer strong design initiatives on the topic whilst creating awareness and incentive on the importance of recycling and proper disposal of household waste.

Rubbish In - Resources Out: Design ideas for waste facilities in London is a report by Dow Jones Architects and Arup’s alternative waste technology specialists.

They developed four design scenarios which examine different types of treatment technology, scale and location, and anurban proposal for each scenario. These range from a large scale, multi-borough facility on the fringe of the city, to a small scale, local facility on a restricted inner city site.
