In our first Engineering for Good talk of 2021, we discuss building climate resilient housing.
As the climate crisis worsens engineers must be prepared to design to mitigate the effects of climate change on populations.
The challenges we face are broad from increased extreme weather events, flooding, temperature extremes to name just a few. John Grant, a senior lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University, will discuss how to address these issues, specifically flooding in the UK. The talk focuses on an example of an autonomous home design planned to be developed in Scotland.
