Webinar: Modular Construction - Paving the way to Net Zero
Modular Construction has been labelled, from some corners, as the future of construction in the Middle East.
The webinar was held. Watch the recording here:
Paving the way to Net Zero
The term "net zero" is increasingly used to describe a broader and more comprehensive commitment to decarbonization and climate action, moving beyond carbon neutrality by including more activities under the scope of indirect emissions, as opposed to relying solely on offsetting. In the construction industry, a project’s total carbon footprint includes emissions associated with the building’s construction as well as its usage throughout the design life of the building. Given the ever-increasing severity of climate change, the path to Net Zero construction is now more important than ever.
The use of Modular Construction offers many unique benefits over conventional construction helping pave the way towards achieving this goal. With the booming construction market, we are seeing in the Middle East, it is the perfect time to take advantage of these sustainability benefits whilst keeping pace with the ambition's construction targets set using high-speed production. Ramboll is keen to explore this topic further being one of the world’s leading modular design consultants with sustainability embedded as one of their core values influencing everything they do.
