Penny Gowler and Will Arnold preview a new embodied carbon tool that has been developed by Elliott Wood and the Institution of Structural Engineers.
This CPD module, sponsored by Steel for Life, examines a number of steel’s credentials specifically on its ability to be reused, recycled and multi-cycled, its structural efficiency as a construction material, and its alignment and application to circular economy principles.
Will Arnold, Jenny Burridge, David Moore, Keerthi Ranasinghe and Sean Wilkins argue that engineers should always look to specify the most suitable material for a particular project, and offer advice on how to use materials efficiently once a choice is made.
