Discover the future of green buildings by exploring behind the scenes at one of the UK's most advanced low-energy installations, At-Bristol Science Centre.
Key to At-Bristol's award winning sustainability is the innovative system that regulates the environment of this iconic building. Join At-Bristol's Sustainability Manager Chris Dunford for a special tour of this revolutionary technology and a look at why it has won dozens of sustainability awards over the years.
The building features the UK's only phase-change tank which, along with air source heat pumps, thermal wheels, green roofs and a photovoltaic array, is part of At-Bristol's cutting-edge environmentally friendly design.
Learn about the science, sustainability and history of this technology as we weave through the hidden corridors, and allow Chris's knowledge and wit to bring them to life! We guarantee this is something you won't see anywhere else!
Please arrive promptly to set off at 5.30pm.The tour and subsequent questions will conclude by 6.30pm. If you don't have to dash off, your ticket will then grant you access to At-Bristol's special Adult Only After Hours event - providing you a rare opportunity to grab a glass of wine and explore the science museum and stargaze in the planetarium* - without the kids!
