Presented by Revival Projects

Almost half of waste worldwide comes from construction and demolition waste. To address this global problem, Revival Projects has set up one of the world’s first free repurposing hubs in the heart of Collingwood to facilitate repurposing initiatives on an unprecedented scale. The 100 year-old, 1500 square-metre warehouse will be demolished in 2024 to make way for a new development designed by Grimshaw Architects that will repurpose the materials from this site. In the interim, Revival Projects invited the design and construction industry to use the space to store demolished materials while associated developments come to life and repurposing becomes possible.

On Friday 25th March 2022, for one special day, this warehouse opened its doors inviting visitors to visit the facility, learn about the materials onsite, and discover how designers, builders and clients can revolutionise the industry approach to repurposing.

Materials on site have been supplied by FJMT architects, Perri Projects, Beulah International, Edition Office, BAR Studio, Hip V Hype, Kerstin Thompson Architects, Assemble Communities, Grimshaw Architects, ANPlus Developments and Bayley Ward Architects among others.
