Last week, Gale & Snowden Architects were lucky enough to be invited to the IBN Building Biology Consultants Conference, held at Verden, Germany.
Being the only consultancy in the UK that is registered with the IBN as an IBN consultant, Gale & Snowden Architects were pleased to be part of the occasion. We met some wonderful people, learnt a great deal, and G&S representatives David and Tomas presented to the delegates on Saturday morning.
Gale & Snowden's presentation included the practice's approach to ecological design and our work with the IBN Building Biology Institute for a new leisure building in the centre of Exeter, planned to be the first Passivhaus Certified and Building Biology compliant leisure building in the world. One of the highlights of the conference was seeing the five-storey straw bale building where the conference was being held - Marvellous!
Thank you to our friends at the IBN for organising the Conference and making us feel so welcome.
