Trimble and Mott MacDonald have come together to bring you a two part webinar series where we discuss the importance of embodied carbon and how structural engineers can play a key role in lowering carbon content through a sustainable design approach.

Date: Wednesday, December 8th, 2021

The importance of building greener has become more prominent in recent times especially as we approach the 2050 Net Zero deadline. By using Tekla Structural Designer, engineers can assess their designs for embodied carbon during the early stages (A1-A3), in these webinars we will explore how to utilise our Embodied Carbon Calculator tool and how engineers can challenge assumptions that favour rationalisation over optimisation in the design stage.

Join us to hear about:

  • Embodied Carbon factors: where they come from, how to manipulate the list and the order these are selected
  • Checking how these factors have been applied visually and how to override or add them
  • Reporting on the material listing and embodied carbon
  • Charting tools and adding charts to reports
  • Reviewing the embodied carbon to utilisation ratios, modifying and updating these to find the worst performing members
