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.

Progress (aka A Nice Diagram)

Well... welcome to Week 3.  This is how our project is looking at the moment: brief, timetable et al.  In one sentence, the Sheffield Homes Project is looking for a new (default) system of waste disposal (which improves on the current one).  Having met through the last few weeks as a full team, worked through forming a brief with our clients, and researched types of waste management and recycling systems individually, the Sheffield Homes team has now split into several action groups, working towards different but complimentary objectives:

1.  Current Housing Stock Research
2.  System Research
3.  Client Liasion and Diagrams, and,
4.  Field Action

Exciting indeed, some promising results in the offing...
