Low-carbon #3: Culloden Battlefield Visitor Centre, Inverness by Gareth Hoskins Architects

  • Comment

Case study to show the six buildings with the lowest predicted annual CO2 emissions for their type

Services engineer Max Fordham
Annual predicted CO2 emissions 14.95kg/m2

A low, compact form reduces heat loss and wind exposure, and the orientation maximises natural ventilation and daylight. South-facing glass is screened by the roof overhang and external louvres. Wind-driven passive ventilation is supplemented by fans in the roof cowls. The biomass boiler, using wood chips harvested within a 10 mile radius, reduces CO2 emissions by an estimated 55 per cent.
