The design, delivery and cost of Net Zero Carbon buildings

EPR is delighted to have collaborated with The UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) on their latest report exploring the design, delivery and cost impact of net zero carbon buildings: ‘Building the case for net zero: A feasibility study into the design, delivery and cost of new net zero buildings’.

The new report, which includes expert insights from EPR Architects, investigates the implications of designing to meet 2025 and 2030 net zero carbon performance targets through comparing different design scenarios for two new buildings — an office tower and a residential block. Longley Place, an 18-storey mixed-use scheme in Brighton designed by EPR, was selected as the representative residential development.

‘This study provides long-awaited evidence that building today to the standards of energy and carbon efficiency required by 2025 doesn’t have to cost a fortune and is likely to be offset by enhanced value (e.g. higher rents, reduced running costs, higher sale price, reduced offsetting costs etc) in due course. But unsurprisingly, when it comes to building to 2030 standards of efficiency, the current capital cost increase on a baseline 2020 design is more challenging to accommodate.’
