The Adaptation and Resilience in the Context of Change network (ARCC) has this week launched the 2017 design challenge on the use of green infrastructure as a building service.

Coordinated in partnership with the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), the challenge launched at this year’s Ecobuild on Tuesday 7 March, following a session on Green Infrastructure as a Building Service.

The challenge is open to individuals or teams, students, practitioners and researchers, who are tasked with creating a green infrastructure vision for an office building. The organisers are looking for designs that demonstrate how green infrastructure, both indoor and outdoor, can be used as a building service to contribute to the health, wellbeing and productivity of staff, while at the same time improving the building’s performance and climatic resilience.

This challenge offers an exciting opportunity for engineers and landscape architects to partner up on a submission. If you are interested, you can find fellow members in the member directory at members.landscapeinstitute.org, or start a discussion on our member network, www.talkinglandscape.org.

ARCC will host a launch webinar on Tuesday 21 March, where they will reveal the technical briefing for the challenge. Visit www.arcc-network.org.uk to register for the webinar or for more information.
