ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the design of the British Antarctic Survey's (BAS) Halley VI station. Currently the subject of a design competition is certain to embrace technologies in areas such as energy, insulation and advanced materials drawn from sectors as diverse as aerospace, marine engineering and indoor climate control. Halley VI, BAS's biggest-ever project, was launched because the existing 20-year-old Halley V station is slowly but surely falling victim to the Antarctic's unforgiving environment. BAS could have designed a new station itself, as it did the previous five, but decided on a competition to bring in fresh thinking from the engineering and technology community. INSET: SHORTLIST OF SIX FINALISTS.
