Sustainable Structural Design: Strategies That Can Make a Big Impact

Description

This presentation provides a summary of sustainable design strategies that every structural engineer can readily implement (at minimal to no extra cost) as well as highlighting emerging technologies in the field including resilient design strategies, life cycle assessment (LCA) to quantify and reduce carbon impacts of buildings, and new timber systems available as alternative building materials. Sustainability is now a mainstream consideration on projects. While architects have focused in large part on improving energy efficiency, the structural engineer is increasingly being looked upon to make decisions that will help reduce the embodied environmental impacts of the structures they design. You don’t have to be a “Green” structural engineering company to build better buildings; a few slight shifts in standard practice can make all the difference. It might be easier than you think!
