The climate emergency is forcing all professions across the built environment to consider how to lower the embodied carbon of the structures they design and build.
The 2022 Using concrete in a changing environment inaugural e-conference was dedicated to helping structural engineers understand how to assess, strengthen and reuse existing concrete structures to extend their life and reduce the impact the built environment profession has on the environment.
Featuring presentations from the e-conference, the third webinar in this series focuses on design and material efficiency.
Learn the principles to design efficiently for low-carbon concrete, and how these can be actualised in practice
Hear about alternative cementitious and aggregate systems towards eCO2 reduction

Senior Engineer, Expedition Engineering
Ailsa focuses on improving the efficiency of structures, through considered concept design, detailed analysis, careful use of materials and applied research. An example of this combined approach comes from HS2’s Old Oak Common Station, where Ailsa led the design of the 1km basement box’s foundations, saving concrete by refining the structural analysis, alongside her development of a study with CARES to make use of tested properties of steel reinforcement.
