Restoring the world’s largest glasshouse to its former glory, while improving the experience for visitors and plants alike...
In commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the first sighting of Antarctica by the British naval officer Edward Bransfield on this date in 1820, a new building to facilitate the British Antarctic Survey’s (BAS) ongoing climate related research in Antarctica breaks ground today at their largest facility, Rothera Research Station.
Ramboll has been re-appointed as Technical Advisors for British Antarctic Survey (BAS), successfully winning the next phase of work in a series of projects to improve and modernise Antarctic research stations and infrastructure. The contract is valued at between £40-50 million and secures our involvement for a further 10 years.

Ramboll analysis shows building systems are being over-designed, often with 50% more capacity than is ever needed. Find out how engineering in extreme environments has informed leaner design in the UK.Read the paper here
Heating, cooling and electrical systems in new buildings across the UK are regularly designed with 30 or even 50% more capacity than they will ever need. This is bad for the bottom line and bad for our planet. By embracing data driven design the industry can reduce capital expenditure, cut carbon emissions, reduce energy consumption and deliver more healthy and sustainable buildings.
