Taster Sessions

Active Classroom

Sustainable Smart Buildings

Tuesday 3rd October 2017, 8:30am – 12pm
Presenter: Jo Morgan
Location: SPECIFIC Active Classroom, Swansea University Bay Campus

Imagine a building that can think for itself, that can continuously adapt to changes in its environment to optimize its energy and water use.

In this short seminar, SPECIFIC’s Building Integration Manager Joanna Morgan, will introduce the concept of buildings that co-exist with their environment. Jo will explore the idea of buildings that are energy positive - generating renewable energy for heat and power, conserving and recycling water.

Describing work being undertaken to develop a sustainable smart buildings concept, Jo will use case study examples of building demonstrators, as well as looking at some of the other projects with partners.  Also included will be an overview of some of the current renewable technologies and the construction materials employed.

By the end of the session, attendees will have an understanding of the importance of smart buildings and how they fit into the wider sustainability agenda for the UK.
