The Thermally Activated Building Structure (TABS) is at the heart of newly opened extension to Tate Modern. The new building with its distinctive perforated brick lattice façade was designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron The TABS concrete core tempering solution effectively transforms the slabs into huge thermal stores for cooling the gallery space. Groundwater is being used to circulate through the pipework to optimise the sustainability of the installation. Scoring a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating, the new building is predicted to use 50% less energy than a typical gallery. Generating 44% less carbon than current building regulations demand.
