Centre is a UK Millennium project, located on a 700 acre reclaimed
colliery site. Using advanced technology, the development takes polluted
water, purifies it and returns it to the river. The building also
serves as an education centre so that visitors can learn about the
benefits of recycling over pollution. The structure is essentially very
simple, similar to a greenhouse, and clad using the Texlon system.
Like all the materials used in this project, the Texlon system was chosen for its high energy efficiency, durability, lightness and low embodied energy characteristics.
