    How Can Digital Design & Data Assist in the Drive for Net Zero?

    The drive towards net zero and the reduction in the environmental impact of development will be dependent on the reduction of both the operational and embodied energy within built assets. Digital design techniques, which have become more prevalent in the last decade, give consultants the opportunity to rapidly explore different design options and interrogate the outcomes against key criteria. This rapid optioneering, combined with data visualisation to optimise the material quantities and embodied energy, will allow project teams to make informed decisions to achieve the best for project outcome. The industry has set itself stretch targets for the reduction in embodied carbon across the built environment and there are challenges to be overcome to achieve these. However, as a collective industry, working together to drive innovations and knowledge into our teams will allow us to realise significant reductions to the environmental impact of the built environment.
