Understanding Net Zero Benefits Using Offsite Construction
Time: 3:10 pm - 3:30 pm
Date: 5.10.22 PM
This presentation will focus on how 3D volumetric systems help NHS trusts achieve their Net Zero Carbon goals, by utilising quality controlled offsite manufacturing techniques leading to reductions in energy during manufacture, delivery, site installation and beyond.
Premier will show that by focussing on a fabric first approach utilising lean, clean and green technologies, coupled with end-of-life recycling of modules closing the circularity loop, leads to both operational and embodied Net Zero Carbon energy.
By early client engagement at the pre-design stages and by using energy modelling evaluation, we can ensure buildings achieve the energy performance requirements and assist clients during their decision-making processes at every stage of the project to deliver a more comfortable building with Net Zero operational and embodied energy.
We will discuss our key learning points:
Fabric First design principles, how improved thermal insulation properties, enhanced thermal bridging detailing and lower air permeability rates require less heating and cooling, saving energy and carbon.
Lean, Clean and Green principles, how we design and build structures that consume as little energy as possible whilst generating as much as possible from clean, renewable sources
Whole Life Cycle and Circularity principles adopting a cradle to grave and beyond design methodology.
Our robust ISO 14001 certified environmental management system and constantly improving environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.
Deliveries minimised because products arrive in bulk, rather than individually to disparate sites – up to 83% fewer vehicle movements disruption, congestion and carbon emissions
Materials are received with minimal packaging to save time and waste on site.
Recyclable modules and components and our Zero Waste to landfill policy
