The Sahara Forest Project is a new environmental solution to create re-vegetation and green jobs through profitable production of food, water, clean electricity and biomass in desert areas.

Evolve Constructed the original experimental test rigs both off and on site, which led to the data confirming the viability of the pilot project. We then assisted with the detail design of the greenhouse systems and oversaw the team of contractors and initial onsite construction. Our Grower Director continues on at the project as the Head Grower for Sahara Forest Project. We wish them all the very best of success for this ground breaking endeavour.

University of Nottingham’s ground breaking H.O.U.S.E project, at the prestigious international architecture competition The Solar Decathlon, in Madrid 2008. This film enabled the highly efficient solar energy building to essentially put ‘sunglasses’ on the building, blocking 30% of the total IR. It also performed a very useful role as the projection screen for the World Cup!
