Using on-site videos, slides and discussions, the project team from SPECIFIC Innovation and Knowledge Centre, and partners Tata Steel, will explore the innovative features of the Active buildings, designed to enhance climate resilience, optimise energy efficiency and harness renewable resources. You will be able to ask questions on particular aspects, outcomes and benefits of the concept or technologies used. You will also hear about plans for the new Active Building Centre, a £36m project funded by the government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge, to be built in Swansea, to enable the deployment of active, decarbonised buildings.

Check out our blog on the Active Classroom.
