Understanding the design and build process

In early 2021 RHS Development Officer and architect, Sam Foster, worked with education specialists Class of Your Own to develop resources to allow pupils at Tobermory High School to learn more about the design and construction process.

These resources are a great introduction to the process no matter your age because, let’s face it, a large chunk of community-led housing relies on volunteer effort or development trusts without specialist knowledge. Whilst we will always advocate for communities to have access to the expertise they need to develop their community-led housing plans, a little knowledge of what’s involved can help you build better projects, so we thought we would share the resources here for anyone who could use them.
