Project BlueGreen was born out of a specific requirement to reduce infrastructure cost of a large remote construction project. The original intent was simply to provide a remote power and storage solution that would allow the client to establish an autonomous working environment without the need for diesel or grid connections. The solution was always intended to be modular and connected however in the pursuit of this “off grid” panacea a revolutionary approach to off-site construction was borne.
Project BlueGreen is not just a smarter way of building temporary or semi-permanent spaces. It is a complete redefinition of what a transportable building should be. In most cases, a Net Zero building generates what it needs but is inevitably still grid tied or fed by an oversized array of renewable technologies. Project BlueGren buildings are different, they are singular, contained smart solutions that operate entirely from the energy created within their own footprint. We don’t have the safety net of a grid connection in our world so everything we do is adaptable, energy-centric and driven by efficiency.
To achieve this goal, the team at project BlueGreen are driven to adopt an “Appollo 13” approach to energy conservation pushing the boundaries of traditional construction technologies, IOT connectivity and hardware to make the every watt count. Thermal performance, air leakage, shading, orientation even phycology have been employed to make the space feel comfortable, welcoming but above all else efficient on a forensic level. Everything in a project BlueGreen solution has an active role to play in the conservation of energy. Every element of the design in our spaces, right down to the toilets and the plug sockets are monitored, analysed and controlled hundreds of times every hour to ensure that the all-important KW/hr reading on each building stays aligned with the hourly consumption. Living or working in a BlueGreen space gives you a sensory connection to what energy means. BlueGreen is more than just a remote working space or green building. Whilst the commercial benefits of net-zero are clear, our spaces develop a much more intimate relationship between generation, conservation and use.
