MECLA Spotlight on Building Services

Price FREE Get Tickets

Event description

Building services are an often underappreciated aspect of the embodied carbon conversation. HVAC, refrigeration, fire safety, escalators, lifts, and lighting account for significant upfront embodied carbon in a building, and an even larger portion of the whole-of-life embodied carbon of an asset because of maintenance. Collectively, building services represent around 15% of the upfront carbon in commercial buildings and 30% of the whole-of-life embodied carbon.

The complex range of materials and manufacturing processes that are involved in building services complicate the carbon calculations related to products, and the relationship between embodied and operational emissions means a holistic view must always be taken to optimise carbon savings. 

A more comprehensive conversation about building services and carbon is developing in Australia, driven by methodologies such as TM65, which is incorporated into Green Star's Responsible Products and Upfront Carbon framework, and companies are innovating to deliver carbon reductions.

Kindly hosted by Aurecon Group in their offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Adelaide, this is an opportunity for the Australian construction industry to join the embodied carbon and building services conversation in four locations around the country or online. Register for free, come meet the MECLA community near you, and hear from experts about the challenges and opportunities for decarbonising building services on the 18th of April!
