Grassroots Community Resource Centre was selected by Comission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) as an exemplary ???Designed with Care - Neighbourhood Healthcare building'. It is environmentally sustainable, using natural energy sources, with a combined heat and power boiler, natural ventilation and passive cooling from the concrete roof slab. It has integrated solar panels and harvests rainwater for landscape irrigation.

Grassroots houses a variety of facilities including: a cafe; Multi Purpose Hall; Children???s Health Centre; Early Years Centre, Sure Start North Canning Town headquarters and creche and a GP centre and is partly sunk into the Memorial Park, with usable landscape running over it. It exemplifies Eger Architects??? concern with the integration of built form and landscape.
