Net Zero Carbon Buildings
The UK has pledged to be net zero by 2050 and buildings account for 40% of all UK carbon emissions.
Foundations, substructures and frames are carbon intensive and, as an industry, we need to change the way we approach building design and execution, as well as achieving interim targets set by organisations including RIBA, LETI, and UKGBC on the journey to net zero.
Throughout our history, we have pioneered new ways of thinking. As technology and priorities change, the best engineering adapts to achieve more. Engineering, although built on strong foundations of knowledge, is constantly changing, and adapting to clients’ and users’ requirements.
From retaining buildings for sustainable reuse, to using less, embracing new materials and technology and applying the principles of modern methods of construction, we can reach the government’s aim of net zero-carbon by 2050.
Our team collaborates closely with our Digital Engineering & BIM experts implementing the latest technology to deliver net zero solutions, tested by our in-house developed Embodied Carbon for Structures tool (EC4S).
Our Buildings Team covers the wide-ranging services required to achieve net zero carbon, including whole life carbon assessments, circular economy statements, embodied carbon optioneering, pre-demolition audits, steel reuse, building passports, material optimisation, vulnerability & resilience, Net Zero Digital & BIM tools, regenerative design, data-centric engineering, material and demolition specifications and much more.
