The Big Move

As a legacy of the 'meanwhile project' at Saxon Court, we took on the task of moving the live lab green roof to its new location at the YMCA Milton Keynes. To do this, we set up a Crowdfunder page to raise the £5,000 needed to cover specialist crane hire and logistics of the move. On 4th March 2022, we reached our target and gained 50 new crowdfunders who helped to make the new roof become a reality.

We chose the YMCA Milton Keynes for 2 reasons: first, it’s ideally situated to show the potential for retrofitting green roofs in Central Milton Keynes and second, it's home to 200 young people between 18 and 35 who would gain from understanding more about sustainable jobs and the need to protect our planet.

Take a look at our time-lapse film of the day the crane moved the Saxon Court Live Lab to its new home on the 9th floor of the YMCA building.
