Gale & Snowden Architects and Engineers were guest speakers for two events at Ecobuild 2013 in London Excel Centre on Thursday, March 7th 2013.
Both talks were held at the same time, one at the Passivhaus seminar stream presented by Tomas Gartner and the other at the Sustainable by Design seminar stream presented by David Gale. Both talks were well received, generating much interest from the audience at Ecobuild.
Both talks showcased the work the practice has been undertaking over the last couple of years applying Climate Ready Design to various live new build projects including an Extra Care facility for the elderly including for Dementia care, a new public swimming pool and leisure facility and an office development. These projects have benefitted from Technology Strategy Board funding under the Design 4 Future Climate programme.
Gale & Snowden Architects and Engineers provide a design service for modelling buildings using future weather data into 2080 and providing cost effective climate change adaption strategies for new and existing buildings to ensure buildings are future climate ready.
Climate ready strategies include maintaining thermal comfort into the future without the need for energy intensive cooling systems, robustness of building envelope and systems and management of water to meet future climate challenges.
