The construction industry is responsible for almost 40% of the planet’s energy-related carbon emissions.
At Cambria, we understand the vital need to reduce the amount of embodied carbon in each of our projects, and are committed to delivering innovative and sustainable engineering solutions that drive towards a net zero carbon future.
We integrate carbon-conscious practices into every aspect of our projects. Our approach involves re-evaluating design methodologies, materials, and construction practices to ensure they we play our part in achieving net zero:
1) Reuse, reinvent, repair: Over a quarter of the construction industry’s carbon emissions are embodied in the raw materials and in the construction process itself. To reduce embodied carbon, we promote the refurbishment, reuse and repair of existing structures over new builds. This approach not only reduces carbon, but is also more time and cost-effective for our clients.
2) Low-carbon specifications: We identify and include low-carbon solutions and low-carbon materials in our design specifications to significantly reduce the carbon emissions associated with our construction and infrastructure projects.
3) Renewable Energy Integration: Wherever possible, we incorporate renewable energy sources into our designs, driving a transition towards cleaner energy consumption and ongoing emissions reduction.
Together, we can build not only resilient structures but also a future where innovation meets environmental stewardship. Here’s how we can guide your project to a carbon-neutral future:
By harnessing our engineering expertise and environmentally-friendly solutions, your development can contribute to a greener, more responsible built environment.
Developers, Local Authorities, House Builders, Estate Managers – If you have a site that you want to develop, involving us at an early stage will help you identify ways of reducing the environmental impacts of your project. We can then help you to develop action plans that address environmental challenges and incorporate low-carbon solutions.
Contractors – If you have decided to tender for a development of any kind, we can help you win it. We will work with you to find potential carbon reduction opportunities, enabling you to submit a more competitive and more environmentally-friendly bid.
The sooner you speak to us, the sooner we can identify the best way to maximise the efficiency of your project and reduce, mitigate and offset carbon emissions.
