Embodied Carbon 101: Structure

August 9 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm

AIA Richmond is partnering with Va. COTE to present Embodied Carbon 101 on Tuesdays through Oct. 4 from noon-1:30 p.m.

Just how much-embodied carbon is your project’s structure accountable for? And what can be done to reduce the impacts?

Structure accounts for a significant portion of a project’s embodied carbon. In this course, a panel of structural engineers and researchers discusses the positives and negatives, with regard to embodied carbon, of using concrete, steel, and timber each as primary structural materials. Panelists share ways to reduce and measure the embodied carbon impacts of each structure material–-through material makeup and specification, material reduction, material sourcing, and reuse.
