Reduce Waste: Materials and Mindsets

Well into our 2nd year of our Living Building Challenge, the mantra Reduce Waste keeps the beat. Here are key waste busters that makes Tanglewood a dream build. We endeavour daily to be:


FIRM about breaking down silos and working collaboratively with all stakeholders.
The challenge: Showing ruthlessly compassionate leadership, modelling and asking for behaviours that reflect holistic problem-solving.


CLEAR and consistent about roles, responsibilities and expectations.
The challenge: Demonstrating transparency enough to build trust in the collaborative process.


CALM when change happens.
The challenge: Living our values: Sustainability-Transparency-Responsibility-Interdependence-Creativity-Holism


BRIGHT! about life when global health is poor.
The challenge: Staying infectiously up-beat and positive enough to find creative solutions.
