Leveraging BIM for the design of low-carbon bridges

The path towards carbon neutrality is difficult and requires involvement of all parties. As engineers, we can make a significant difference because most of the carbon footprint is locked in at the conclusion of the design process. With this in mind, the ecodesign and digital strategies of international engineering and consulting group SYSTRA have recently culminated in the development and practical use of a unique carbon-emissions tool for bridge design. Carbontracker is a solution that measures the carbon impact of each step of the bridge design process, providing bridge engineers with real-time CO2-emissions information that can be taken into account during decision-making. The session will include a live demonstration of the solution in the context of a design review for a bridge.
