Understanding where these emissions are generated, and reducing them accordingly, is critical if we want to deliver net zero assets. But not every project requires a whole building life-cycle assessment - we provide our clients with tailored solutions.
As part of our net zero approach to design, we carry out a sustainability workshop at the project outset. At this early stage, we identify the likely hot spots in the development that will be responsible for a large proportion of the embodied carbon. In buildings, this might be the foundations, basement and structural frame. In infrastructure, materials like concrete, asphalt and steel can form a high proportion of the overall score. Our design team will focus on strategies that avoid or reduce the materials and construction systems with a high carbon impact.
Monitoring carbon as projects evolve and move through the design and construction stages can be complex and time consuming, especially when reviewing and calculating the impacts of multiple design options. The quality of the data used is important, so we need to ensure we are using the most accurate data as we investigate and manage the carbon impacts and optimise designs to get best value.
To improve the accuracy and speed of assessments, we use OneClick LCA, life cycle assessment software that is industry recognised and accepted by planning authorities. With numerous benefits for detailed and involved projects, OneClick LCA:
