The built environment contributes around 40% of the UK’s total carbon footprint and the energy used to create the materials used during construction.
The embodied carbon of a building’s structure is a major contributor to this figure. Reusing or repurposing all or part of an existing building can create reductions in embodied carbon. This is true of any part of a building including its foundations.
Join Buro Happold’s Geotechnic experts as they present case studies and best practice in reusing existing foundations to unlock redevelopment opportunities and take a step closer to achieving net-zero.
