Sturgis Carbon Profiling grew out of the architectural practice Sturgis Associates.
Sturgis Associates was a design orientated commercial and residential practice majoring in Retrofit and Refurbishment projects. Simon Sturgis closed this practice in 2014 in favor of Sturgis Carbon Profiling.
A number of Sturgis Associates projects pioneered ideas of embodied and ‘whole life’ carbon. Gareth Roberts was closely involved in developing these ideas.
111 New Cavendish Street was one of the first UK buildings to have a full Whole-life carbon assessment. The cladding was designed on a ‘capcarb’ vs ‘opcarb’ basis, ie on a carbon cost / benefit basis.
Nexus was also one of the first UK buildings to have a full whole life carbon assessment, and was the first London office project to successfully include an embodied carbon reduction analysis in a Planning Application. The scheme specifically quantified the carbon benefits of retaining the existing structure. This was accepted as an innovative part of the sustainability strategy by the City of London and contributed to a successful content.
Aldgate House pioneered high performance cladding including Ecotech influenced bespoke shading to an existing commercial building. Despite the size of the building enlarging by approx. 6% with full height glazing, the cladding design enabled the existing plant to operate successfully within the enlarged building.
Thames Tower- a 25 storey tower design for LaSalle Investment Management and ADIA. The key innovation was that the cladding and services were designed specifically for a 30 year lifespan (2×15 year leases) at which point they would be replaced and recycled. The aim was to optimize the embodied carbon footprint over the life of the building. The cladding was designed to minimize heat gain by varying the elevational design on each façade.
