Gale & Snowden are pleased to announce that we have been successful in winning significant funding for two clients’ projects from the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) – Design for Future Climate: Adapting Buildings Round 2 competition. The projects are a new public swimming pool facility and a new office complex, both to be designed to Passivhaus standards. The funding is to allow the practice to investigate solutions to deal with future climate change by employing our skills in building physics and low environmental impact, passive design.

The award of the funding comes after the practice was successful last year in the Round 1 funding from the TSB for investigating and designing in climate change adaption for an Extra Care Facility in Exeter, Devon. This Round 1 work will be completed in October 2011 and the results will be made available shortly afterwards.
