Week 3

posted 10 Jun 2014, 09:38 by Group Design Projects Imperial
This week has been busy busy busy, with GAIA having made progress in foundation and basement designs as well as looking at designing against damming from groundwater flow. We've also been looking at sustainability issues and the possibility of using energy piles as a means of generating electricity so that we can meet our target of 20% renewable energy (approximately 800000kWh for our site!)

We've also been looking into problems like how do you dispose of excavated clay? Why, start an on-site pottery club, of course? We’re sure it’ll all be used up ion 10 years or so!

Our assessment this week showed significant improvement, with team members getting technical with flyover videos of the development.
