One person’s rubble might be potential material for Gap Filler’s new office.
Sustainable Habitat Challenge (SHAC) and ReGeneration Trust New Zealand are collaborating to build an office for Gap Filler in Colombo St, Sydenham, with the help of volunteers and as many recycled or sustainable materials as possible.
Gap Filler project co-ordinator Coralie Winn said she was humbled by the plan.
“It’s a very generous gesture that they are doing this for us and also teaching young people building and design skills,” she said.
