BCIA releases new technical guide addressing embodied carbon


The BCIA’s Technical Working Group has produced a new Technical Guide to add to its online portfolio of Guides

Non-residential buildings last for many years and when considering the whole life of the building or asset there is carbon consumption outside of the in-use phase. The materials that make up the shell of the building structure, the plant and controls installed within, all require processing from the extraction of raw materials to the delivery of a finished product or installation.

The BCIA's latest guide considers how embodied carbon can be reduced in BEMS systems, and may be downloaded from the link below.
