#3 Embodied Energy and Whole Life Carbon — Register to attend here
Wednesday 2 December – 16.00 – 18.00
Industry expert and architect Simon Sturgis demystifies operational carbon emissions and embodied carbon, and explains the importance of the calculation of both to provide detailed Whole Life Carbon analysis to inform design decisions. Engineers support and provide examples of how this can be used to target low carbon designs.
#4 Standards for Better Performing Buildings — Register to attend here
Wednesday 16 December – 16.00 – 18.00
Zero Carbon, Net Zero and Passivhaus are all standards/targets that designers can strive to achieve, some more stringently measured than others.
