Analysing our carbon footprint
Carbon is by far the most significant and current issue facing the house building industry. As part of the construction sector that contributes 45% of the UK’s total carbon emissions, house builders have an obligation to radically reduce their impact. The House building industry is poised on the edge of revolutionary change, the likes of which the sector has not seen since the beginning of the age of industrialisation, but we are keen that our involvement in this change is well thought out, based on a thorough and holistic understanding of our planetary impact and how we limit it.
MMC and novel construction methods have the capacity to transform the fabric of our homes and the ways in which they are built, operational systems which include smart PV, Battery storage, V2G and Hydrogen provide a technology and infrastructure platform which could completely upend operational performance, mobility, energy ownership and distribution, and behaviour.
