Relationships between building structural parameters and embodied carbon Part 1: Early-stage design decisions
The purpose of the placement was to assess the relationship between embodied carbon and the various structural requirements of a building design brief. The placement analysed both theoretical and real buildings to produce guidance that clarifies these relationships. The main focus of this placement was to find relationship between structural depth ver. spans, live loads and initial carbon intensity for different structural solutions (floor solutions). This report can be used as a design guidance to communicate relationships and inform future decisions as well as by designers to make informed design decisions and communicate the implications of the brief to clients.
