Launching on 18 March 2021, this tool will help you to quickly estimate the embodied carbon in your structures.


 

Date: 18 March 2021 | 18:00 GMT

This free evening lecture will provide an overview and live demonstration of The Structural Carbon Tool.


The tool is an Excel-based carbon estimator. I can be used with the IStructE guide How to calculate embodied carbon.

It has been developed by Elliott Wood in collaboration with the Institution. It will be freely available to all members as part of the ongoing focus on the climate emergency.

The tool enables users to quickly estimate the embodied carbon in their structure, and allows comparison of up to six options at once. It can be used to locate embodied carbon hotspots in a design, allowing a focused approach to reducing it.
 
The Structural Carbon Tool is aligned with BS EN 15978, BS EN 15804 and the RICS professional statement Whole life carbon assessment for the built environment. It is also aligned with the SCORS rating system proposed in 2020 by the Institution’s Climate Emergency Task Group.



In partnership with

Elliott Wood have donated The Structural Carbon Tool to the industry free of charge, in response to Construction Declares. The Institution has worked alongside Elliott Wood to align the tool with our existing guidance as part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability.
