Leap has worked on two joint research projects with the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Surrey to develop a series of carbon reduction design tools (CReDiT) for use within its site investigation reports. Leap recognises the unique position that it occupies at the very beginning of development projects and the value of informing clients on the carbon cost of design recommendations.
There is an urgent need to optimise redevelopment to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the construction process without compromising the requirement for delivering a safe and suitable use of the site.
With that in mind, Leap has worked in partnership with the University, backed by external funding from NERC to provide information on the embodied carbon cost of its report recommendations and encourage the conversation about carbon at an early stage in the design process.
Leap feel so strongly about their role in change that headline information from the CReDiT tools will be provided in ALL site investigation reports without additional cost to the client.
We will then seek to provide more detailed consultation where the full range of Leap’s sustainability capabilities can be deployed to the benefit of the client and the environment.
