Managing infrastructure carbon – new global standard PAS2080

Design, MCE News

PAS2080 is the newly revised global standard for managing infrastructure carbon which will be a key enabling tool for carbon reduction.  This standard outlines collaboration, quantifying and reducing the whole life of carbon and understanding the impact across the whole lifecycle from procurement through delivery to end of life.  Our director, Matt Colton, will be presenting a paper at Engineers Australia later this year (2023).

This Low Carbon Concrete Routemap is an urgent part of the overall strategy to reduce carbon emissions. Concrete is the most ubiquitous of construction materials. In the UK it accounts for approximately 1.2% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, although globally the cement production GHG emissions associated with concrete utilisation could be as high as 4.0%-5.0%.  This Routemap can be considered not just as a comprehensive guide to reducing the carbon emissions associated with the construction industry, but also as a unique document in itself – never before have we been able to assemble such a wide range of independent experts working together to tackle this, each of whom has volunteered their time willingly. They represent a full cross-section of the value chain involved in specifying, designing, constructing and supplying materials for buildings and infrastructure. The Routemap sets out recommendations and actions to drive out carbon from concrete. It has been published jointly by the Green Construction Board and the Institution of Civil Engineers to ensure ongoing ownership, commitment and drive.

Happy International Women’s Day!!

Today we braved the rain ☔️ and headed into the City for High Tea to celebrate the women of MCE, Annabella Dao, Jennifer Finn, Clare Fenwick & Nicky Fell and wish all women across the world an amazing day.  Thinking of those affected by the floods along our Australian East Coast in particular – stay safe everyone.

We asked Jennifer – who also happens to share her own birthday today with all the women in the world! –  to give us her thoughts and experience as a female working at MCE…..

Jennifer started working as a Document Controller with MCE in April of last year.  She is currently working on the Sydney Metro West project where she brings over ten years of Document Control experience with her.

“In my role, every day is different and challenging at the same time…every day is a learning day in the Engineering Industry!  I’ve had the opportunity to work on some incredible projects over the years with some great teams, which I’m glad to be able to say had some wonderful female leadership.  I’ve been very fortunate to be a female empowered by the construction environment.

One of the most rewarding parts of my job is being able to help people, whether it’s assisting the team with technical support or setting up new processes to facilitate access to the most current documentation on the project.

It’s very exciting knowing you are playing a part in bringing these projects to life.”

We look forward to bringing even more female representation into our expanding MCE Team.
