Civic House: Exploring Scotland’s First Retrofit ‘PassivWareHaus’

Day: Thursday
Time: 18:00

Civic House is an early 20th century printing press based in Speirs Locks North Glasgow. In 2016 it was acquired by community interest company Agile City to convert its use into a public venue, canteen and workspace.

Agile City’s core principles in developing the building has been to retain as many original features of the building as possible whilst creating a leading example in carbon reduction innovation as Scotland’s first retrofit ‘PassivWareHaus’.
