The UK construction industry contributes around 40% of the country’s total carbon footprint. Previously, many carbon calculators have focused on carbon associated with building, but only from the ground up. This webinar will present Leap’s foundation carbon calculator, a tool that has been developed in conjunction with the University of Surrey. The tool was designed to consider embodied carbon associated with foundations and will enable developers to identify carbon costs and potential savings early in the design process.
