Gale & Snowden Architects recently presented one of the keynote projects at this year’s UK Passivhaus Conference, on 20th October 2015 at the Business Design Centre in London.

Presented alongside AFLS+P, the live project Exeter Leisure Centre (‘Exeter Active’) was discussed, focussing on the design challenges faced throughout the project so far.

Gale & Snowden Architects are working alongside a team of consultants (including AFLS+PARUPARCADISLDA Design and Continuum) to deliver not only the first Passivhaus Certified leisure building in the UK, but also the first leisure building to be designed in accordance with Building Biology IBN principles and to be Future Climate Ready. This innovative building is scheduled to be completed in 2018.

The presentation is now available to view online:
