Gale & Snowden Architects presenting at Ecobuild 2012

Gale & Snowden Architects were one of the guest speakers at this year’s Ecobuild exhibition at the ExCel Centre London.

David Gale was invited by the TSB (Technology Strategy Board) as a guest speaker on Wednesday 21st March at the Sustainable Architecture & Design seminar stream. The presentation session was entitled ‘Designing for climate change adaptation: opportunities for architecture’ and David’s talk was entitled ‘Integrating adaptation: ExtraCare4Exeter’.

David’s talk centered on Gale & Snowden’s St Loyes Extra Care facility project in Exeter including the design and design process as well as the adaptation measures that have been incorporated into the building so that the building can adapt to the changing weather in the future.

The building has been designed as the first Passivhaus care facility in the UK.

The seminar was well received and an interesting Q&A session followed the talk.
