Climate Change Adaption
We’re all aware of the impact of greenhouse gas emissions on the UK’s climate – the hotter, drier summers, the warmer, wetter winters and the rise in extreme weather conditions like heavy rainfall and heatwaves. However, the challenges these climate changes pose for the buildings we live and work in are only just beginning to come to light. Overheating is emerging as a major concern, as well as issues like flooding, drainage, water conservation, and material durability.
So our climate change adaptation strategies involve a thorough assessment of your development, focused on identifying specific climate-related risks. Taking into account the latest regulations, such as the new Overheating Assessments that align with the CIBSE TM59 (2017) guidance, we’re then able to propose clear, practical actions to help reduce the negative impact of climate change over the lifespan of a building.
