We are a part of the problem... therefore part of the solution...Act today.

Take a moment to listen to the full VLOG, which covers everything from hyper granular BIM models to Blockchain!

Our CEO Gareth Evans was honoured to speak to students and members of the public at the recent International Festival of Surveying hosted by the University of the West of England, about the pressing issue of decarbonizing construction.

We were joined by co presenters Dara, Suki and Liam who presented in the morning on hyper granular BIM models and they then joined Gareth to showcase some of the new integrated design and procurement techniques which companies and students might want to consider in future roles to help decarbonise construction.

As we all know, the construction industry is responsible for a significant amount of global carbon emissions. In fact, it is estimated that the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry contributes to approximately 39% of global carbon emissions. This staggering statistic highlights the urgent need for action to reduce our industry's carbon footprint.

So, what is the challenge we are facing? We are facing a climate crisis, with global temperatures rising at an alarming rate. This is leading to increasingly frequent and severe natural disasters, such as floods, wildfires, and hurricanes, which are causing devastating consequences for communities across the world.

The construction industry must take responsibility for its role in contributing to climate change and take decisive action to reduce its carbon emissions.

To achieve this, we need to look at the entire lifecycle of a building, from design and construction to operation and eventual demolition.

Throughout his presentation, Gareth asks us to consider the materials used, the energy consumed during construction, and the energy used to operate the building.

WE MUST ACT now and strive for a more sustainable and energy-efficient built environment.

A big thank you to Dara Khera, Lia Tootill, Sukshma Paranjpe of Bohm and Rebecca Lashley, Jim Mason of UWE and of course all the wonderful staff and students at the the wonderful University of the West of England.
