Innovate UK / Technology Strategy Board (TSB) have recently published the final report into The Business Case for Adapting Buildings to Climate Change.
Gale & Snowden Architects were expert panel members for this report which examines the drivers in the business case for adapting buildings for climate change. This was an industry led report providing a unique and valuable insight with key recommendations on how to exploit the business opportunity and develop the market for adaptation services – moving the subject from niche research to mainstream delivery.
Gale & Snowden Architects and Engineers provide a full ‘Design for Future Climate’ consultancy service for both existing and new-build projects. The integration of a climate change adaptation strategy for a development is best undertaken at the outset of the project and can often, for little additional expenditure, ensure that a project is fit for the future without the need for either significant and costly adaptation or the future introduction of energy intensive systems.
