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.
Authors from Integral Engineering Design describe how they met their client's brief for a new science department that would demonstrate sustainable building structures to students. The result - The Nucleus - is a carbon-negative structure which will offset its operational emissions for seven years.
