As you are undoubtedly aware, the construction industry is responsible for approximately 40% of all global carbon emissions. This is an enormous issue, and there is no single solution.
Codesign is proud to partner with 2050 Materials to bring an early-stage Carbon Calculator to Codesign.
This simple tool takes the building data from Codesign's building model and combines it with user-selected properties to calculate the carbon impact of the design.
With this new tool, customers can quickly try different building and material types and receive quick feedback regarding those decisions. Combining these calculations with Codesign's built-in design options allows architects to explore more and assess the outcomes early in the design process, ultimately allowing more informed decisions to be made before the cost of change becomes prohibitive.
The Carbon Calculator is available for all Codesign Professional customers in today's version 3.1 release.
