As buildings become more complex and connected, the demand for materials supporting high-performance facilities has also increased. This includes building controls, lighting, electrical and digital infrastructure, audio/visual (A/V), and other aspects of the structure.
International engineering firm Walter P Moore has released a stewardship report entitled Embodied Carbon, A Clearer View of Carbon Emissions. The report focuses on an issue of relevance for all material specifiers, which is the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
The ability to understand and to measure a building’s environmental impact is pivotal in order to make buildings more sustainable. By exploring the principal methods and tools assessing carbon footprint in the context of building materials, architects and specifiers can compare alternate designs and make informed choices.
