Hivve was created in response to the growing need for high quality, sustainable social infrastructure, particularly in the education sector.
The Hivve team set themselves a goal: to design a holistic, modular building and clean technology system that could rapidly, sustainably and economically meet this need.
More importantly, Hivve wanted to design a learning space focussed on the needs of students and teachers, because research shows that the quality of the classroom environment has a direct impact on learning. This meant prioritising the indoor air quality of the learning space, increasing natural light and ventilation, addressing thermal comfort and acoustics and bringing nature indoors.
The Hivve team developed an integrated clean energy and technology system – Hivve iQ – that fully powers schools with renewable energy while monitoring and managing the indoor environment to ensure optimal learning conditions. Hivve iQ was designed to be central to the Hivve modular building or installed in any classroom or building across the school to improve its performance and sustainability.
