Introduction The aim of this project is to develop new markets for textiles in Galashiels, activating local industry and reviving its remarkable industrial past with a fresh new identity. The objective is to catalyse research and development at Heriot-Watt University’s School of Textiles & Design as a leverage point for creating new, innovative and sustainable textile materials and applications for the built environment. As part of the College’s ongoing research activity this would promote valuable knowledge and channel it into design and manufacturing sectors. Heriot Watt University The School of Textiles and Design has a long history of industry-relevant and leading-edge research in fashion, textiles and design. Centres of expertise include chromic materials, printing on cashmere knitwear, 3D simulation of flexible materials, inks for digital printers, fibre optic weaving, nano-tecnology and medical textiles. Their research covers a wide range of disciplines, from textile science, engineering and technology, colour chemistry and physics, to fashion, clothing, interior and product design. Their specialism is in research at the design/technology interface where they develop technologies and exploit design applications in tandem.

Energy Proposition External adaptable skin system

Microclimate A The skin is a modular panel system for testing and showcasing textile systems for construction. The microclimate and performance of the external skin is dictated by the selection and configuration of the panel systems, making the skin adaptable to different, seasons, climates and weather conditions. The external skin aids the energy demand in the studio and office building (Microclimate B) and the refurbished warehouses (Microclimate C) by creating an adaptable Microclimate (A) around these buildings and enhancing their performance by controlling heat loss and generating power.

Environmental Impact Cardboard paper tubes are made from recycled paper. Paper is a renewable biodegradable material made from wood. The tubes are used for rolling paper and fabrics onto them. At Heriot Watt School of Textiles and Design paper tubes are a buy- product from the textiles they use. At the end of its life cycle the structure could be easily disassembled. The paper tubes can disintegrate into the ground and the metal and plastic parts in the connectors can be recycled. Textile Test Bed The paper tube structure is for testing or showcasing textiles for construction. The textiles can be placed on top of the structure and fixed with metal connectors permitting different textile sizes and configurations depending on the laboratory needs.
