Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

The Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh Environmental Architecture Research Unit (MEARU) has been engaged in a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with award-winning, research-led architects Cartwright Pickard. The partnership concerned building performance evaluation and drew on specialist knowledge developed within MEARU.

Developing our understanding of the energy and environmental performance of buildings will lead to improved, more cost-effective housing design for the future. The Knowledge Transfer Partnership sought to develop and embed Cartwright Pickard’s capability to undertake detailed performance evaluation in sustainable, low-energy housing and to utilise these findings in their future architectural practice.

Funded by Knowledge Transfer Partnerships. Knowledge Transfer Partnerships helps UK businesses to access the knowledge and expertise available within UK Universities and Colleges in order to improve their competitiveness, productivity and performance. The KTP associate at Cartwright Pickard Architects is Antoinette Charles.
