training the private & public sector
The experience Gaia has accumulated through architectural design, community consultation, consultancy and research work has been developed into interdisciplinary design and process guidance.
Gaia specialise as facilitators at project inception, for brief setting and project development. We also offer a design advice service that extends from the outset of a project through to facilitating interdisciplinary design solutions and post-occupancy analysis. We are able to aid public and private sector developers to put in place strategic frameworks for improving standards.
Demand for Gaia courses is driven by word of mouth and by the knowledge that behind the training is a track record of delivering high quality projects at the cutting edge of sustainable and low carbon design. Gaia's master classes draw on three decades of experience working with a wide range and scale of building from single houses to masterplanning and from single function leisure, educational, commercial and industrial buildings to high density inner city mixed development. Gaia have been learning from and contributing to best practice in over 10 European countries over the past 20 years, and authored numerous seminal publications.
