Subject: The complex lexicon of carbon: From embodied to net zero, a manufacturers perspective on the Volumetric Manufactured Building sector.
Andy King, Group Technical Director of Wernick Buildings and Technical Committee Chair within the Modular and Portable Building Association. Working with a number of key manufacturers for 30+ years gives Andy a unique perspective to discuss what is a modern method of construction and those methods that have been tried, testing and improved. The Wernick Group are committed to reducing their own emissions to net zero by 2040 and have developed buildings for their own us in addition for the changing construction market in multiple sectors.
The complex lexicon of carbon: From embodied to net zero, a manufacturers perspective on the Volumetric Manufactured Building sector.
Removing the complexity across so called modern methods of construction, diluting myths, and embracing reality. Do consultants requesting embodied carbon figures all want the same information, do they all know what they are asking for? Can a VMB be benchmarked for embodied carbon in the same way as traditional building materials? Is there a better way to compare construction methods?
