tor&co assists in UKGBC study revealing significant carbon reductions can be achieved across residential developments at little cost

tor&co has contributed to key findings in a significant report published today by the UK Green Buildings Council.

UKGBC’s new report, titled ‘Building the Case for Net Zero: A case study for low carbon residential developments’, uses the case study of Trumpington South, Cambridgeshire, for which tor&co were architects and masterplanners. 

The study demonstrates how housing developers can achieve a 20% embodied carbon reduction across low-rise residential developments through simple masterplan-level design interventions, which tor&co were able to contribute to, showing these steps were both cost-effective and achievable today.
