The latest techniques for reducing carbon in infrastructure construction will be under the spotlight at an industry seminar in Birmingham in November organise by CCC together with the UK’s Green Construction Board.
Companies involved in Europe’s largest infrastructure projects such as Crossrail, HS2 (High Speed Rail) and Highways England, will outline their carbon reduction approaches. Also under discussion will be the recently released new standard for life-cycle carbon infrastructure management, PAS2080.
Other important areas of discussion include collaborative working with supply chains to minimise GHG emissions, and infrastructure rating systems (BREEAM/CEEQUAL) and carbon calculations in procurement and operation.
Under analysis will be the future role of Building Information Modelling (BIM) as a support tool for construction planning and carbon optimisation.
On show will be the latest developments in:
– Low carbon building materials
– Alternative fuels & electromobility
– Site efficiency, simulation & modelling tools
– Logistics & off-site solutions.
