Snug Projects director Paul Bulkeley has been entered for the S.E.T Awards, Lecturer of the Year, for work undertaken with final year Civil Engineering with Architecture student, Criag Irvine. The work related to the design for a zero carbon out of town office building. The project involved a fully integrated solution to carbon neutrality. The Project demonstrates a viable, financially feasible, energy efficient, out-of-town office design. The design was proven to be carbon neutral, defined as a building where total carbon consumption is reduced and any remaining emissions are offset by renewable energy sources which produce carbon-free energy on site. An original graphical analysis tool, developed by the team, was used to compare the design to a generic design. The analysis produces what has been termed as the Greenprint of the building. A visual representation that uniquely emphasises a buildings increased positive impact.
