Course Details
Australia has signed on to the Paris Climate Change Agreement, committing to keep global warming to below 1.5C to 2C. The buildings industry has made a lot of progress in understanding the solutions for operational energy, and inevitably the proportion of impacts that is from embodied energy is increasing. One of the outcomes of the GBCA roadmap to achieving this goal is to adopt zero carbon materials, products and services.

The highest proportion of embodied energy is typically found in structural materials specified by the Structural Engineer. To take this next step forward, Sustainability Consultants can benefit from understanding the Engineer’s options to ask the right questions and influence better outcomes.

Adam Jones, Future Green Leader for 2019, is a Structural Engineer passionate about design for reducing embodied energy and will lead the webinar on:

- Trends of operational vs embodied energy
- Influencing Structural Engineer’s culture
- Efficient design
- Solutions with concrete
- Solutions with steel
- Design for adaptability and resilience
- Reuse of existing buildings
- Solutions with timber
