Scott Brownrigg to support Open-City's Green Sky Thinking Week
Scott Brownrigg is supporting this year’s Green Sky Thinking Week, a London-wide platform highlighting expertise, leadership and innovation in sustainable design and build.
Created by Open-City, Green Sky Thinking Week will run from 17 to 21 September 2012, with leading names from architecture, engineering and property taking part in a programme of sustainability-focused activities in and around London.
The week’s programme includes informal on-site and live project talks, seminars, roundtable discussions and building tours hosted by participating practices and companies. As part of the programme, Scott Brownrigg Project Director, Ed Hayden will be hosting a talk on the practice’s carbon minus design for King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery. The regiment’s new BREEAM “Excellent” home in Woolwich, designed on behalf of Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) and Morgan Sindall uses sustainability as its driving feature and incorporates a unique bio-fuel strategy to achieve a carbon minus status.
The activities across the week aim to encourage cross-sector collaboration and an holistic approach to sustainability. It is aimed at those who influence how a sustainable built environment is designed, created, financed, managed and used.
‘Creating a carbon minus scheme for King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery’ will be held on Monday 17 September between 6.30pm and 8pm. See greenskythinking.org.uk for further details.
Scott Brownrigg was highly commended in this year's AJ100 Sustainable Practice of the Year Award.
