Clever ideas to adapt UK buildings to the changing climate could scoop £100,000 in a design competition
A total of £2.4m is up for grabs in a repeat of the successful Design for Future Climate scheme run by the Technology Strategy Board last year.
The organisation is inviting proposals from clients or their design teams to develop adaptation strategies for current new build and refurbishment projects at pre-planning or detailed design stage, or those already on site.
Contracts of up to £100,000 will be awarded to cover the total costs of developing an adaptation strategy. At the end of the contract, applicants must submit a detailed report of their data, designs and findings, for dissemination by the Technology Strategy Board. The funding may not be used towards capital spend.
The deadline for registration is 29 June 2011 and successful applicants must complete the work by 31 August 2013.
