Simon Sturgis of Sturgis Carbon Profiling was invited to contribute to the Farrell Review of Architecture and the Built Environment. He highlighted the untapped potential of a whole-life carbon perspective for achieving a more holistic, efficient and sustainable approach; from retaining existing buildings, to targeting high recycled content, to the benefits of good design.

Reflecting a busy year for Sturgis Carbon Profiling, both Simon Sturgis and Gareth Roberts participated on the Ecobuild 2014 programme discussing SCP’s work.
Simon chaired a seminar on Corporate Strategies for Whole Life Carbon. Gareth shared the SCP experience of delivering Sustainable Retrofit at Scale, and addressed the question whether it is better to Adapt and Reuse or Demolish and Rebuild. The third day, SCP presented Whole Life Carbon Stories from ‘Boris Island’ to King’s Cross.
Sturgis Carbon Profiling appeared at Ecobuild 2013 for the third year running. Simon Sturgis discussed SCP’s work on the WWF UK Living Planet Centre, as well as the economic benefits of whole life carbon analysis, whilst Gareth Roberts highlighted the potential for integrating food production into buildings, and talked about practical solutions for reducing whole life carbon.
