Total Carbon Study
EBNet has helped in sponsoring the Total Carbon Study, a project undertaken by Integral Group and Siegel and Strain Architects, with funding from StopWaste.
The "Total Carbon Study" of the DPR San Francisco office was initiated by a group of embodied carbon and Life Cycle Assessment experts who tracked "total carbon" emissions of the net-positive energy performing retrofitted building. The case study project reported nearly 70% avoided embodied carbon emissions associated with building material supply chain when compared between a new construction and significantly reused existing building structure. Therefore: Reuse to the maximum amount possible, and renovate to be net positive whenever conditions allow!
