Creative building solutions
COLLABORATING WITH OUR PARTNERS TO IDENTIFY INNOVATIVE BUILDING TECHNIQUES AND DELIVER THE HOMES OF THE FUTURE
This pillar focuses on our strategic goal to implement processes and procedures that maximise operational efficiency. One example is that we are working towards gaining our Building Information Modelling (BIM) accreditation in 2023. In delivering against our 2030 roadmap, we continue to develop our approach to innovation through embracing modern methods of construction and smart solutions for the digitally-enabled, sustainable homes of the future.
14.3% of spend invested in MMC (2021: 13%)
55% targeted reduction in CO2 in new homes* (2021: 40%) *against 2013 national standards
100% of new build schemes benefit from low carbon or renewable technologies (2021: 100%)
We are increasingly challenging our supply chain to provide clarity on carbon intensity through Environmental Product Declarations, which will be a key component in reducing our embodied carbon footprint. This will also provide greater clarity on the forecasts contained in our Whole Life Carbon assessments as we progress through the project lifecycle.Oliver Rooke, Senior Surveyor, BLL Champion
