Analysis: CN-SBS Retail Building
The CN-SBS Research Project will be conducting an analysis of the schematic carbon neutral steel retail building including:
- Initial embodied energy of the steel structural system.
- Life-cycle embodied energy (approach, diagramme, and calculations). How does the embodied energy of the building change over multiple life-cycles of construction, use, and recycling/re-use?
- Basic energy modeling of the building to verify operational energy demands.
- How does the schematic carbon neutral steel retail building fit in with existing Green Building Protocols?
The research project will also be examining other closed-loop recycled products (such as Interface/Shaw carpets, Tecknion furniture, Firestone roofing) to investigate how a similar methodology to recycling/re-use can be applied to steel buildings.
