Watch the Development: TV Gallery


It took a lot of planning and understanding to enable us to achieve the accreditation's that we have, which started as early as 2009.

With a great deal of creativity and a great team of experts, the site was fully operational by July 2012.

What we learn and how we adapt the site accordingly, continues on a daily basis as you will see from the measurement section we have on this website.

As we built the Historic Green Village, we captured so much on film and here in our TV Gallery present a series of short clips that share our learnings, our experiences and adventures, and introduce you to some of the key people that were involved, from engineers, construction workers and historical and energy experts.
