Black Soldier Fly Unit

Sanergy is a Kenya-based social enterprise that promotes the fundamental human right to sanitation by increasing access to and usage of hygienic sanitation facilities in informal settlements. They create an efficient, equitable, and sustainable sanitation cycle by building a dense network of small-scale sanitation centers across the slums, a low-cost containerized waste collection infrastructure, and converting this waste at their central processing facility into useful byproducts, such as organic fertilizer and renewable energy.

The goal of the Black Soldier Fly Production Facility is to produce the fly larvae that will decompose the waste from the sanitary facilities into fertilizer. With a total of 7 different phases (and buildings) within the production process, Orkidstudio is providing an end-to-end service, designing an appropriate arrangement of spaces for efficient production and delivering high quality and efficient construction services to boost production as early as possible.
