Restoring the world’s largest glasshouse to its former glory, while improving the experience for visitors and plants alike...
Completion of the new King Edward Point Research Station wharf marks the latest milestone for the £140m UK Antarctic Infrastructure Modernisation Programme. The new wharf and mooring dolphin provide the extra capability required to berth the new UK polar research vessel, the RRS Sir David Attenborough. The MV Pharos SG, fishery patrol and logistics support vessel, will also use the new wharf.
In collaboration with Scott Brownriggs’ Design Research Unit and Hoare Lea, Ramboll has helped design ‘The Social Contact Pod’; a space for those who have the greatest need to be protected from the Covid-19 virus to spend valuable time with loved ones without the risk of contamination.

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.
