The Eco-Construction and Maintenance (EC&M) Department is responsible for the upkeep and expansion of the project site and our buildings. This requires the regular repair and maintenance of the project buildings and services, including the houses, irrigation line. The line needs cleaning and on occasions dams and other structural improvements to the system need to be made.
The EC&M Coordinator is also responsible for the initiation and implementation of new works for infrastructure and research purposes. In all cases a mixture of traditional and ecological building methods and materials are used.
In addition the Eco-Construction coordinator/s are committed to new innovation on the project, so encourage volunteers to come with an idea of the work they hope to achieve.

After studying I continued working as a self-employee builder and tiller in Spain. I then decided to move to Liverpool, where I began to work with recycle wood.
In Liverpool I worked for TAO (an Art Organization) as maintenance and in Kazimier (a Collective Performance Company) building spaces for the venues in the local.
One of the my best experiences was working with Kazimier www.thekazimier.co.uk where I discovered my abilities to source building materials from rubbish, using then to built eco green house bed sits for Tracy Lewis www.tracylewis.co.uk , another artist from Liverpool.
My aim is the 3R: Reduce, Recycle and Reuse. Have a look at some of my work at sunseed on this blog.
