    Join Phil Northcott of C-Change Labs and Tim Burnham of Autodesk Consulting to explore new free carbon-analysis tools for design and procurement of infrastructure projects like water and transport networks. The speakers will explain the climate impact of concrete and steel, key opportunities for low cost impact reductions, and how to communicate options and savings to stakeholders. The talk will include a short demonstration integrating Civil3D with EC3 on an underground water network example. We will generate a sustainability report on the civil design and show how carbon intensity can be built into a public procurement. There will be an opportunity for Q&A at the end.

    Key Learnings

    • Understand how infrastructure construction impacts climate, and how it can be more climate efficient.
    • Use EC3 and Civil3D® to report and reduce the climate impact of an infrastructure project.
    • Build climate impact measures into materials procurement for an infrastructure project.
    • Engage with suppliers to reduce climate impacts and document improvements for stakeholders.
