The aim of the low carbon building project by Carbon Costed Designs Ltd is to explore a “carbon driven” approach to building, by quantifying the emissions associated with each phase of the construction process so that embodied carbon is considered more easily within the decision-making processes of builders, suppliers, clients, policy makers and other stakeholders.
This project will quantify the carbon emissions associated with a new build passivhaus project, CCD are undertaking. It will use embodied carbon (EC) as a metric in the decision-making process. At each stage of the build, EC will be considered alongside cost, regulations, performance and availability of materials in an effort, to reduce the associated emissions.
