Lifecycle & Embodied
Embodied carbon is a measure of the carbon dioxide equivalent emissions (CO2e) emitted into the atmosphere in order to construct, maintain, and ultimately demolish buildings.
As performance improves over time and buildings require less energy to operate, these emissions account for an increasing proportion of total whole life carbon.
At Passive Dynamics, we utilise the latest life cycle assessment tools to calculate embodied carbon at both early design stage, in order to influence design decisions, and post-construction stage, for GHG reporting purposes. We aim to provide solutions that work holistically to optimise and reduce both operational and embodied carbon, including recommendations for low carbon materials, enhanced durability and adaptability, and energy efficient building fabric and MEP services.
