Barbican Weather Data

The University of Reading are working with the Underfloor Heating Working Party to help determine how weather conditions impact on on our heating system. As part of this process three weather stations have been established on the estate; at the top of Cromwell Tower and Gilbert House, and on Beech Gardens near the western end of Frobisher Crescent.

A lot of data are being collected and it seemed like a good idea to share it.
