Low Carbon Building (LCB)
Director: Professor Rajat Gupta
Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org +44 (0)1865 484049
We hold world-leading expertise in the field of carbon mapping, building performance evaluation, low-carbon retrofitting and climate change adaptation of buildings and neighbourhoods.
Other related areas of expertise include urban energy modelling using Geographical Information Systems (GIS), smart energy communities and design of low-energy buildings in diverse climates.
The group is leading a number of international research projects including a multi-million pound UKRI grant on residential building energy demand reduction in India.
Publications from the group in low-carbon buildings and sustainable design are recognised international references.
- Architecture (MPhil / PhD / PhD by Practice / PhD by Published Work / Research Degree involving Creative Work)
- Sustainable Architecture: Evaluation and Design (MSc)
The low-carbon building research has generated a range of environmental, public policy and practice benefits to local authorities, housing providers, architects, low-carbon community organisations and homeowners.
These local, national and international benefits have been realised through refined global common carbon metrics, BSI standard, public engagement and deployment of energy retrofit measures. This resulted in CO2 emissions reductions of over 60% in existing domestic and non-domestic buildings.
