The Eden Project opened in 2001 to global acclaim – for its engineering, design and environmental credentials.
Part of the team that brought the attraction to life, we transformed what was a disused clay pit into the world’s largest indoor rainforest.
Creating Eden's enormous geodesic domes required meticulous planning, 230 miles of scaffolding and a team of abseilers. We made sure sustainability, environmental design and waste management were built in every step of the way.
Since then, we’ve expanded facilities, creating an education centre and contemporary office space.
A celebrated visitor destination, the Eden Project is now a key player in Cornwall’s economy, providing education and training across the region.
As well as managing and segregating site waste, we worked to minimise our impact on the local environment, community and wildlife.
We reduced site pollution and impact on local roads through shared transport, batching site deliveries and routing of project traffic.
We sourced site contractors, equipment and materials from the surrounding area where possible.
We also developed a drainage system filtering water into a series of enormous tanks, which enables Eden to recycle 80% of its water.
