Net zero carbon construction

Passivhaus inspiration

A Climate Leaders’ Programme project

Nathan Edmondston (Jerram Tocker Barron Architects Ltd., Nelson) aims to encourage architects and others in the construction industry to measure the carbon impacts of their buildings and make drastic reductions in emissions in order to meet future government requirements.

With a view on New Zealand’s ‘net zero carbon’ build deadlines – 2030 for all new builds and 2050 for all existing – Nathan is asking architects and designers to do two things: 1. use carbon analysis during the design phase; and 2. maximise the use of local timber while minimising the use of concrete and steel. His Passivhaus design acts as a case study to highlight areas for improvement and inspiration.
