Ben Gholam describes the development by Price & Myers of a parametric benchmarking tool to allow engineers to produce scheme designs with the lowest embodied carbon.
Ian Poole explores ways to improve the utilisation ratio of designs, and encourages engineers to challenge assumptions that favour rationalisation over optimisation.
In the form of embodied carbon, steel is a significant contributor to the climate crisis. This guidance sets out how structural engineers can use their steel specifications to help move the industry towards net zero.
