For those that are new to the subject, we will recap the relevance of embodied carbon to the structural engineer and provide basic information around calculating and reducing it.
We will then go on to signpost to some of the climate guidance that we have published in recent years and will discuss the changes that have been implemented from 2023 around the Institution’s Professional Membership requirements.
Mike Sefton, Associate Innovation Engineer for Expedition Engineering, member of the Climate Emergency Task Group at the IStructE and the Structural Engineers Declare Action Group.
At Expedition Engineering, Mike follows his passion for pioneering sustainable construction solutions. He searches for ways to reduce carbon, cost, and the environmental impact of infrastructure projects and for the opportunity to scale these across the industry. This current forward-thinking role draws on his wide structural design experience gained through working on award-winning international projects during his career with Buro Happold. Former projects include the London 2012 Water Polo Arena and the transformation of the London Olympic Stadium.
During 2022, he took part in the first cohort of the Constructivist Regenerative Design Lab where he explored and developed thinking to take current sustainable approaches further, to grow a built environment which can enable society and nature to thrive together. He is currently searching for ways to share and apply this thinking.
Mike is an expert in his field and shares his knowledge across the industry, through speaking at events and writing articles, with the aim to work towards a more positive and sustainable future.
