Building climate resilience from the early design stages

VE Gaia: Early Stage Design Analysis

Buildings are responsible for 39% of energy related CO2 emissions. By integrating building performance from the earliest stages of design, alongside creativity and vision, it is possible to significantly reduce the energy and environmental impacts of our buildings to make a real impact.

As the race to net-zero intensifies, this is our moment - as building designers, architects and engineers - to play our part. Together we can make a difference.
