This lecture explores lean structural design, how to challenge a brief to reduce embodied carbon, and low-carbon structural innovation.

Reducing structural embodied carbon is a crucial step towards achieving the 2030 net-zero targets and beyond, and structural engineers need to approach design differently.
 
This lecture explores several methods to reduce embodied carbon in design, including:

  • Retrofit and donor buildings

  • Deviation from design codes

  • Material innovation

  • Low-carbon procurement

  • Lean structural design

  • Challenging the brief
