The UK Government is pursuing a net zero carbon society by 2050, which requires a significant cut in greenhouse gas emissions across a variety of sectors, including existing buildings and new construction. Current UK policy sets out a target to reduce emissions by 78% by 2035 (compared with 1990).

Our team undertake embodied and whole life carbon assessments using the leading life cycle assessment software to calculate the carbon footprint of a development. On review of the carbon modelling, we advise on a range of potential carbon reduction opportunities with the aim of decreasing the amount of carbon emissions for your project to align with or exceed industry benchmarks.

76 Upper Ground

A whole life carbon assessment is currently being undertaken, supplemented by the Design for Performance approach, to reduce carbon in both construction and operation.

63-81 Pelham Street

The project is targeting net zero carbon in construction and operation, BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ WELL Certified ‘Gold’, WiredScore ‘Platinum’ and 5 star NABERS UK rating.

St Andrew Street

Net zero carbon assessment complete, our case study will be available soon.

We believe the tracking of carbon throughout all stages of a project is crucial and ensures that the design development / decision making process takes into consideration the associated carbon impact.

When the amount of carbon emissions associated with a building’s product and construction stages up to practical completion is zero or negative, through the use of offsets or the net export of on-site renewable energy.

When the amount of carbon emissions associated with the building’s operational energy on an annual basis is zero or negative. A net zero carbon building is highly energy efficient and powered from on-site and/or off-site renewable energy sources, with any remaining balance offset.

When the amount of carbon emissions associated with a building’s embodied and operational impacts over the life of the building, including its disposal, are zero or negative.
