Design for future climate: Adapting buildings

1st July 2010

The Technology Strategy Board is launching a new £4.9 million competition to fund the development of strategies to adapt UK buildings to the changing climate.
Here in the North West it is expected that there will be hotter, drier summers accompanied by wetter winters leading to increased flood risk.
Buildings will need to cope with these new pressures and it is vital that robust strategies are put in place to minimise the damaging effect of climate change in order to increase buildings’ commercial lifetime.
This event will introduce the competition and outline the challenges faced by the built environment in terms of inevitable climate change.
