As a signatory of the Climate and Biodiversity Emergency Declaration in the Autumn of 2019, the Practice made a commitment to publicly sharing data with the wider industry with the aim of increasing awareness of embodied carbon within building structures.
Our original dataset, built based on carbon values sourced from the ICE database, contained embodied carbon figures for over 80 projects and since its publication on our website has been downloaded thousands of times. We were proud that this data was used by the IStructE to help with the creation of their SCORS carbon ratings system, which we have also adopted internally.
Our Climate Action Group has been working hard over the past year to improve and upgrade our carbon calculators and we now have industry-leading tools which are being used to assess the embodied carbon impacts of all our current projects.
The data previously shared has been expanded slightly and upgraded to cover all lifecycles of both the building and its component materials. We are once again happy to make this publicly available to anyone who wishes to use it by downloading the PDF file here. If you would like to request an excel format version, please email Ben Gholam email@example.com.
We are continuously generating this data on all our projects and will aim to upgrade the files at regular intervals – so please keep checking our website for more information.
