Sustainability is an issue close to the hearts of the BIMobject team. That’s why BIMobject jumped at the opportunity to support the non-profit Plastic Free Seas as part of our charity initiative Building Hope. The Hong Kong-based organisation works on several levels to reduce plastic waste and pollution, a growing problem not just on local beaches, but in oceans across the globe. We talked to CEO and founder Tracey Read to learn more about the champions and challenges of plastic waste reduction.
FAKRO fusion – Before and After is an international design competition were you have the chance to win 5,000 euros. Together with FAKRO we have the pleasure to invite architects from all around the world to transform dark and dusty spaces into bright and functional interiors.
In the building industry, sustainability is often discussed in terms of waste at construction sites and the environmental impact of materials used. As important as these aspects are, creating a sustainable future is about building communities, too. Charmaine Savage knows this better than most. Her foundation, I Am East St. Louis, tackles this question in East St. Louis through a variety of projects bringing both tangible change and hope to those who need it. For the BIMobject team, supporting I Am East St. Louis as part of our charity initiative Hope was a perfect fit. We spoke to Charmaine about building and rebuilding for the long haul.
