Introduction

Sustainability

Bronze

The development is designed to achieve Bronze level for sustainability under Section 7 of the 2013 Scottish Building Regulations using a fabric first approach.

Remit

Carbon Futures worked with the design team from inception to develop a cost-effective and practical energy and sustainability strategy for the development using multiple dwelling compliance.

As energy consultants, our focus was to develop an enhanced fabric strategy through increased levels of insulation, minimising heat loss.  By adopting a fabric first approach, the building design will maximise the performance of components and materials that make up the building fabric resulting in reduced capital and operational costs, improved energy efficiency and a reduction in carbon emissions. 

Additional services provided by Carbon Futures include Design Certification, Building Regulation Compliance and Energy Performance Certification.
