Ibstock has launched a new sustainability Carbon Conscious Design CPD that supports architects and specifiers by discussing the changes within the construction industry from an ethical and environmental viewpoint, and how this will affect future projects from a build and design perspective.
Legislation is a primary focus on the course, with net zero emission targets having been set by the UK Government for 2050, the incoming ‘Future Homes and Buildings Standard’ and amendments to AH Parts F and L expected. All of which are discussed alongside the need to reduce the production of carbon overall and how these changes have the potential to affect you from a business, employee, architect and specifier perspective.
The course also looks to highlight the barriers architects and specifiers face in the journey to becoming more sustainable and potential solutions to overcoming these challenges, such as the importance of continuous training, advancement of industry technologies and what associated costs may look like going forward.
Through the consideration of people, knowledge, and technology, Ibstock aims to address the key factors impacting the construction industry from a sustainability point of view and inform architects and specifiers of the difference in design potentials, materials used and more through its new Carbon Conscious Design CPD.
