Natasha will discuss what sustainability means to the practicing structural engineer and our increasing role as leading change in the built environment In the past, sustainable design was about energy efficiency and building out of timber Now we realise it is much more than that, as can be seen in the Construction Declares manifesto In order to tackle the Climate Emergency we need to build less, refurbish wherever possible, and be considered and thoughtful about where we use our carbon Natasha will talk through some of the initiatives and pragmatic ways in which she is reducing the impact her designs have on climate change, for example challenging the client on what ‘ really means, and understanding where ‘quick win’ carbon savings can be made if programme and fee are tight
