WISE is the most beautiful combination of environmentally conscious design and cutting-edge green building techniques. The venue is sensitively constructed out of low embodied energy materials such as hemp and lime, rammed earth and locally sourced sustainable timber. With innovation in sustainable architecture at its heart, WISE has been nominated for and won several prestigious architecture awards.

Designed for low energy consumption in use, electricity contributions come from on-site renewable energy sources including solar photovoltaic panels, hydro and wind turbines. WISE also hosts an impressive array of solar thermal collectors which contribute to the domestic hot water needs. Situated at the Centre for Alternative Technology, the UK's foremost renewable energy training centre, WISE certainly walks the eco talk.
