Building Tomorrow’s World Today
What we do
By bringing together cutting-edge technologies and materials, we create environments that build communities from the ground up and improve the lives of people who live in them.
Together, we have the skills and the scale to build world-changing, sustainable living solutions effectively and efficiently. We work with governments, NGOs and private sector companies to deliver sustainable projects globally that stand the test of time. We believe in a world that nourishes and nurtures its communities – that’s why we devise and deliver projects that improve people’s lives and enable them to thrive for generations to come.
How we do it
SHS brings together a wide-range of skills and innovative technologies to create affordable, sustainable living solutions for the developing world. This combines a range of core capabilities
How we do it: We run Suite Living, which delivers secure, cost-effective student friendly environments. Created out of the realisation that hundreds of thousands of students globally are living in sub-standard accommodation as a result of landlord’s negligence, Suite Living offers safe living campuses to enhance student productivity and university experiences.
The inability to access clean and safe drinking water is a fundamental barrier to human progress. Dirty water brings sickness, hinders school attendance and inhibits people from reaching their full potential. That’s why we work with partners to create technology and techniques that increases access to clean water.
We work with:
- Desolenator, a water technology company that makes clean water universally available and affordable. Its integrated patented system combines the thermal and electrical energy from a PV panel, with a process of heat exchange to produce pure water. As such, the Desolenator is completely energy independent. With support from its partners, Desolenator’s projects deliver the technology to vulnerable communities that struggle to access clean water on a daily basis. Desolenator
Working in harmony with the world’s natural energy source, we are able to build green energy solutions directly into housing projects – creating fully integrated and sustainable solutions.
How we do it:
- We run WWRE (Worldwide Renewable Energy), and provide investment in renewable energy sources including Wind, Photo Voltaic, Waste to Energy and Tidal. All projects enhance local communities sustainability, whilst at the same time we are assisting small island nations to become 100% self-sufficient in the generation of energy.
- We work with MYRA Investments, a firm dedicated to managing, investment and directing capital into renewable energy power generation projects in emerging markets. MYRA Investments,
We work with:
- VectorCide is an innovative coating which can be applied to buildings to protect people from insects carrying diseases such as malaria and Zika. The Vectorcide coating is tested by The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and case studies include application to the wall of mud huts in Zambia and reported success of the product.
