First interview with Dr Robert Crawford

Posted on: April 9th, 2013 by Barley Store

Prior to the construction of the build, we interviewed all members of the Project Team. Here’s the first interview with Dr Robert Crawford who’s in charge of measuring and assessing the Project’s Embodied Energy.
Issues discussed:
– Opportunities for minimizing the carbon and energy input of the Project
– The input-output based hybrid assessment approach that will be used for quantifying the embodied energy and emissions, which is more comprehensive than using traditional industry based process analysis techniques
– The benefits of the prefabrication approach used to construct the 5×4 Hayes Lane Project
– Other considerations for selecting construction materials, such as recyclable content
– Opportunities to showcase the 5×4 Hayes Lane Project to other design & architect students as an ideal outcome of the project
