CoRE - creating the buildings for tomorrow from today’s existing homes

The UK suffers from a shortage of affordable homes while at the same time thousands of older properties lie empty.

The CoRE vision is to provide a highly skilled workforce equipped with all the necessary skills to create sustainable, environmentally friendly, homes through a large scale programme of refurbishment.

The centre will showcase the latest sustainable building solutions and provide trades people with the knowledge needed to embrace the new technology and techniques necessary to help build a low carbon future for homes in the UK.
