The Hive is full of sustainable design features and we have developed a self-guided Sustainability Trail so that you can discover them.
Borrow a trail map and supporting notes from the pod in the children's library and find out more about The Hive's sustainable features. There are stickers on the windows/walls at each numbered point around the building. The trail starts in the café on Level 1.
