Wells Shares: Better Design Through Embodied Carbon with Precast Concrete Webinar
December 3, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Please join PCI Midwest and the other Chapters of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute in attending this free AIA-CEU approved education webinar titled Better Design through Embodied Carbon with Precast Concrete
Webinar Description: Now that architects have a good understanding of environmental impacts related to energy use, the next design frontier in tackling climate change is reducing the embodied carbon in buildings. This webinar will focus on best practices for determining the embodied carbon in a building, including credible sources for embodied carbon data. It will introduce common practices and misconceptions about comparisons of embodied carbon. A case study will be presented that highlights how design decisions may be influenced when comparing among up-front carbon, use-phase carbon, or whole-life carbon. The presentation will highlight existing tools related to quantifying embodied carbon.
Presenter: Emily Lorenz, PE is an independent consultant in the areas of LCA, EPDs, PCRs, green building, and sustainability. She serves as an engineer in the areas of green structures and practices, energy efficiency, thermal properties, and moisture mitigation. Lorenz also specializes in green building code and standard work and advocacy.
