This Saturday we join the world in celebrating #EarthHour. For the next few days we’ll share with you some examples of how a smarter way of thinking can help reduce carbon emissions and the environmental impact of the places we create. https://lnkd.in/eu2Dq6P
We’ve just finished redesigning and rebuilding one of the UK’s key intersections – the complex Catthorpe interchange that connects the M1, M6 and A14. The new £191 million interchange is part of Highways England’s road improvement scheme, delivering more than £15 billion of the UK Government’s investment across the country. The scheme is set to revolutionise journeys made by over 150,000 vehicles through the area daily. See how we work to improve safety and reduce journey time for road users across Britain. https://lnkd.in/eQYwM5K
Spårväg City is a tramline project in central Stockholm. The team reduced the total embodied carbon footprint of a phase of the project by approx.16%, or 42 tCO2e by working with the county council to create smart project management techniques.
By using concrete with a lower carbon intensity, timber where possible and load bearing steel beams made from recycled steel, we reduced the carbon footprint from creating the Veitvet School Project in Norway by 50%.
