Open Days & Open Minds

Over the last few months, our CobBauge team, alongside Grocott & Murfit Builders, hosted two successful open days including Wednesday, September 28, 2022 at the CobBauge Pilot Build House in Fakenham, North Norfolk. These included an overview of the innovation and ambitions of the CobBauge research project, its guide for designers, the standard detailing and design as well as the tour of the first CobBauge house in Fakenham.
The Open Days was incredibly rewarding, giving the whole team the opportunity to meet and keep in touch with new stakeholders in the field of natural building materials and a real for CobBauge’s construction potential in the future
