Project Overview

The scheme involved the demolition of the existing antenatal clinic and the construction of a new satellite radiotherapy unit, housing state-of-the-art Linear Accelerator’s (LinAc’s).

To respond to the site's natural surroundings, sustainable design was at the heart of the client’s requirements, with a focus on patient wellbeing through low carbon design (operational and embodied carbon), and enhancing the biodiversity and amenity value of the site.

The Challenge

The client wanted us the consultant to provide sustainable and low carbon design solutions to reduce the embodied carbon on this project. 

Our Solution

We implemented a decarbonisation strategy, with adherence to Passivhaus principles and a focus on embodied carbon reduction.

Using our embodied carbon tool, we undertook an embodied carbon sensitivity study, which influenced the resulting structural design and considered lean solutions, as well as material choices. In doing so, we provided a tangible carbon reduction output, helping the client achieve their aims.
