Unlocking sustainable designs through digital material passports

As we continue our journey to net zero carbon it is clear that material passports are key. As sustainability experts we are investing in creating digital passports that provide an insight into a building’s identity. All the information gathered will be essential to minimise waste, reuse and rebuild in a more sustainable way.

Our digital passports focus on:

  • Material origin
  • Embodied carbon
  • Circularity
  • Health & wellbeing
  • Certifications
