Click here to see presentations from the successful Design for Future Climate Change Conference on Wednesday 18th May.
This event showcased projects funded during the first phase of the Technology Strategy Board competition Design for future climate: adapting building in 2010, and provided an overview of the second round of the competition being run between May and June 2011.
The event gave the delegates the opportunity to hear from project teams that have been developing adaptation strategies to tackle the challenge of climate change across a variety of building types including schools, offices and university buildings. The presenters highlighted the innovative solutions they have developed to adapt their buildings in terms of comfort (eg management of internal temperatures), construction (eg stability of foundations in changing ground conditions) and water management (eg increasing resilience to flooding).
