AHMM wins funding for net-zero carbon research partnership with UCL

AHMM has won match-funding from Innovate UK for a new Knowledge Transfer Partnership with The Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources at UCL. Supported and informed by teams and clients across the practice’s projects, the research will include a real world, large scale complex project with existing ambitious targets, ambitions and requirements for British Land at Canada Water as the basis for a comparative study to develop additional design solutions, management strategies and adaptation plans to meet net-zero carbon targets. Exploring what a net-zero carbon building could look like in the context of a complex, mixed use, densely developed and commercially driven project, it will also explore the implications for the development process, for commercial viability, and for architecture more generally. Outcomes will include a design guide, publications and communications to promote developing legislation and policy. Find out more about the project here.
