Waterman have developed our own specialist BIM integrated analysis tool – ‘Wat Carbon’ to facilitate rapid analysis of the embodied carbon in our structural solutions. Our carbon calculator tool takes Revit data and applies carbon measures to deliver carbon tonnages. It facilitates timely decision making that effectively factors in carbon as part of the design development. We have used our extensive portfolio to analyse historic projects using ‘Wat Carbon’, which has resulted in the development of benchmarking tools. These tools allow us to advise on the likely impact of early design decisions, demonstrating their contribution to the development’s embodied carbon metrics.
Our engineering specialists provide creative solutions for all types of superstructures, ranging from towers, stadia and long span structures to architectural features and exposed structures in a range of construction materials, including steel, concrete and timber.
We provide specialist sustainability support for schemes across every sector and scale, from major city-wide master planning initiatives to individual buildings. We offer overarching sustainability services focused on the core themes of energy, circular economy, wellbeing, heritage, ethical supply chains, low carbon transport, natural capital and water resources. Our sustainability experts fully embed themselves in the design team, providing clear guidance from the outset, covering all stages from feasibility through to detailed design, during construction and on into the operational phases.
Our sustainability team support you with professional advice on ethical supply chain implementation and management as well as sustainability framework solutions. We consider the environmental and human impact of products and suppliers, forensically examining the journey through the supply chain, from raw materials sourcing to production, storage, delivery and every transportation link in between. We help you minimise environmental harm from factors like energy usage, water consumption and waste production while having a positive impact on the people and communities.
We work closely with a wide variety of clients to prepare, implement and monitor tailor-made Sustaiable Transport Plans that support the drive for active travel.
We understand the need for an integrated approach to SuDS design, not only to meet planning requirements but also to provide the most cost effective and practical solutions. Our specialist team creates designs which manage runoff from developments, reducing the risk of flooding and improving water quality by managing pollution.
