Level 2 Industrial Case Study: The Built Environment
It is obvious that our built environment is of huge direct importance to everybody's as daily life, but it is also contributing some of our most urgent challenges. With a world population of many billions, the impact from construction and maintenance is monumental. Resource extraction and material production as well as heating and other energy use, including transport systems, all have global-scale consequences.
In this case study, we use the Granta EduPack 2019 Architecture edition, to show some features to explore and discuss the Built environment. Materials for buildings are investigated and the Eco Audit Life-cycle tool is applied to a house.
