Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

The objective for the funding is that access to ICT is improved for users of service, family carers and staff to enhance the quality of life offered with the service and improve opportunities for learning. ARP was appointed to undertake a quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the effectiveness of the grants distribution process. The report doesn't seek to evaluate the impact of the grants but on the investment process itself, and the various ways to distribute £12 million fairly across the sector of approximately 25,000 social care providers.
