Carbon smart design

Targets to build long term, avoid sites requiring deep foundations and select optimal structural options greatly reduces the whole life carbon of a building. Early-stage planning tools can help to understand and get feedback about carbon hotspots related to design and material selections, as well as provide an opportunity to optimise your site planning. 

The further along you are on a project, the options to reduce the impact on carbon footprint decrease, but can still make a difference if designing smartly. For instance optimising building design, focusing on efficient energy use, using low carbon and durable materials and designing for modifiable floorplans or disassembly.

Our offering includes Autodesk and One Click LCA technology complemented by our Building Carbon Optimisation services that can help you throughout the project lifecycle.
