Sustainable Design and Construction for University of Chester

Chester UniversityHaving carried out Investment Grade Energy Audits, produced a new Carbon Management Plan and advised on managing Scope 3 carbon emissions, TGC was asked to help the University to develop an enhanced approach to sustainable design and construction.

This was achieved by running a WRAP-based “Designing for Resource Efficiency” workshop for the estates and procurement teams. Using an up-coming refurbishment project as a focus, the potentials for design improvements, cost effective re-use of existing materials and priorities for procuring improved ‘low carbon, ethical components’ were explored. The result was an ‘Action Plan’ report setting out procedural improvements, more appropriate and effective contract clauses and an improved project scope.
