A project led by the Universities of Bath and Cardiff will work with communities in Bristol and Swansea to co-design energy efficient and low carbon housing
Centre for Climate Adaptation & Environment Research
We carry out research to better understand and combat the impact of extreme weather events on our natural and built environments.
Sustainable natural resources, food and water security, and public health
Water management, coastal protection, ecosystem restoration, and nature-based infrastructure
Resilient buildings and resilient energy, transport, and urban infrastructure.
Decarbonisation of industrial and agricultural processes, carbon sequestration, and carbon capture.
Atmospheric dynamics, and weather-related research
The climate system, including its variability, and the causes of climate change.
Locating resource efficiency at the heart of future industrial strategy in the UK.
Funded by the British Academy, the WAFER project is enhancing the use of sustainable earthen construction in developing countries.
This EPSRC-funded Programme Grant will examine how infrastructure assets can be better maintained and monitored for future resilience.
This research will improve how uncertainty is treated during life cycle assessment (LCA) of construction products and of whole buildings.
Professor Stephen Emmitt and Dr Alexander Copping are co-investigators in this EPSRC-funded project in partnership with industry.
An EPSRC-funded project across several institutions, in which Dr Paul Shepherd of CASA and several of our post-doctoral staff are participants.
