Patrick Watson, Partner, 3PM
3PM have been fortunate to have delivered a number of exemplar low carbon schemes, from the multi-award-winning Enterprise Centre for UEA to an eco-village campus wide strategy to our current world first low carbon retrofit scheme for UoC.
Each scheme has developed both our technical & practical understanding of low carbon delivery resulting in a project route map that has been trialled on a number of recent schemes. We will put these schemes in context of the low carbon agenda, highlight the lessons learnt concluding in our route map for delivery and demonstrate just how making small changes in approach we can lead the required mindset shift to delivering our low carbon future.
‘Integrating Carbon Reduction Targets in Masterplanning’
Jennifer Juritz, Head of Environmental Design, David Morley Architects
Sustainability in all its forms is now more important now than ever. Responding to increasing climate and biodiversity concerns, the UK Government has pledged for the UK to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and created a ‘Ten Point Plan for a Green industrial Revolution’.
Legislative updates underway include higher energy efficiency requirements in the Building Regulations and the Environment Bill, with priority areas of air quality, biodiversity, water and resource efficiency, and waste reduction.
The need for action to address environmental issues is also increasingly reflected in public opinion.
These trends, with implications for land management, building projects and associated procurement activities, present both opportunities and challenges to navigate when engaged in strategic planning.
Referencing examples from David Morley Architects portfolio of master planning work, Jennifer will present reflections on how Low and Net Zero Carbon targets may be integrated with wider estate development initiatives.
