Design for Future Climate competition showcase event features three Gale & Snowden projects

The Technology Strategy Board (TSB) held their Design for Future Climate competition showcase event this week at the Building Centre in London.

The TSB booklet produced for the event features three Gale & Snowden climate change adaptation projects: a new build extra Passivhaus care facility for the elderly including high level of dememtia care, known as 'St Loyes Extra Care 4 Exeter'; a new Passivhaus public swimming pool design for Exeter, known as 'Swim 4 Exeter'; and a new build Passivhaus office development at Tiverton, known as 'Passivhaus @ Devonshire Gate'.  The articles on these three projects, featured in the TSB booklet can be read below.

Our PassivOffice at Devonshire Gate project was featured as one of the key project presentations of the Day.  Architect Tomas Gartner presented the PassivOffice project on behalf of Gale & Snowden and was part of the Q&A panel session following the presentation.  Gale & Snowden's presentation can be viewed below.

The RIBA will be publishing shortly a book written by Bill Gething of design for future climate.  Gale & Snowden's TSB Extra Care 4 Exeter project will be featured in the book.  We will let you know when the book is on sale.
