KJ Tait Engineers are involved in a pioneer project under the LETI initiative. This is a school project for Buckinghamshire Council for which we are doing the design as part of this initiative.
This has been a very useful exercise in gaining a better understanding of the impact of design proposals to provide a zero carbon school.
To be registered in the scheme, Buckinghamshire Council have agreed that energy consumption post occupancy can be monitored.
We have also calculated the embodied carbon for this school design. This exercise influenced the fabric and structural design to minimise the embodied carbon of the school construction.
