Nice work Lloyd, and thanks for the post on treehugger!

Updated Website Live

Thanks to the hard work of Work/Study student Sim Wan, our updated web site is up and running!

We've made the big switch away from frames, which will allow visitors to easily bookmark a page and return to it, added a new navigation menu, updated lots of old pages and added several new pages, including one on our design process and another on construction costs. Have a look:
