BuroHappold participates in UNESCO World Heritage Day
To mark this year’s event, which focuses on architecture and engineering, BuroHappold is joining together with other organisations in Bath to tell the story of the development and growth of this most unique spa city.
We will be celebrating our long history in Bath (our first office opened here back in 1976) and there to inspire engineers of tomorrow with hands-on activities for all ages. Showcasing our innovative work on the Bath Abbey Footprint project, an extremely sensitive site designated as a Scheduled Monument. Bath’s natural hot springs have been a draw for visitors for thousands of years, the most famous, of course, being the Romans who built a small town, Aquae Sulis (becoming known as Bath centuries later), and the hot bath complex soon became the hub of the community. It’s from these natural springs, still producing 1.2 million litres of hot water today, that an ingenious engineering solution is being deployed by BuroHappold to create new low–energy underfloor heating system for the Abbey. We’ll have several of our expert engineers on hand to answer any questions about our projects in Bath or the profession in general.
The event is being held at Green Park on 18th April from 11am to 3pm, so if you’re in the area then do try to visit us. Find out more here.
