Design for Future Climate, Brighton (Hyde Housing)


Daedalus Environmental was responsible for securing and delivering the Innovate UK funded research project examining solutions for new build apartments to ensure they are fully adapted to a future, changed climate, typically with higher temperatures, more variable rainfall, and increased risk of uninhabitable buildings. On behalf of Hyde, and in conjunction with Yelo Architects and E3, Daedalus Environmental developed the overall strategy and design proposals, including extensive building modelling and analysis. The range of solutions enabled both passive and active measures to be implemented over a long term period to ensure cost effectiveness in addressing an enormous challenge for the construction sector.
