At this year’s Digital Construction Week (DCW) event, Causeway Technologies is set to lift the lid on an innovative new project focused on measuring Scope 3 emissions.
Dr Adam O’Rourke, Causeway’s emerging technologies consultant, will showcase the project, designed to address the challenges of measuring embodied carbon head-on, on the net zero stage at 4pm on day one of the event (Wednesday 17 May).
Causeway’s Scope 3 Initiative is being developed in collaboration with Tier 1 contractors Balfour Beatty, Galliford Try and Morgan Sindall, as well as major supplier Aggregate Industries.
Dr O’Rourke will explore the advantages of measuring real-time embodied carbon – the key building blocks of Causeway’s solution – and the company’s ongoing work with its collaborating partners to test and develop it.
Dr O’Rourke will take to the net zero stage again at 11.30am on day two of DCW (Thursday 18 May) alongside a panel of representatives from project partners for a discussion on measuring Scope 3 emissions.
Participants will include:
• Graham Edgell, Group Director of Sustainability and Procurement at Morgan Sindall Group
• Jack Waring, Sustainability Manager – Strategic Delivery at Balfour Beatty
• Paul Wagstaff, Head of Product Management at Aggregate Industries
• Phil Tompkins, Director of Risk and Sustainability at Galliford Try
Dr O’Rourke said:
“As the industry heads towards net zero, Scope 3 emissions are increasingly considered the biggest challenge to reducing its carbon footprint.
“Causeway’s latest collaborative project addresses the challenges of measuring embodied carbon, providing an important solution which moves beyond carbon calculator estimates to real-time reporting across projects.”
While attending the event, Causeway colleagues will also be offering a sneak peek of an extensive new research report they’ve compiled, which looks at data, digital transformation, sustainability and productivity in the construction industry.
The report will provide a valuable roadmap for organisations looking to adapt and thrive in an ever-evolving business landscape, and attendees will have the opportunity to get a first look at the full report upon release.
Dr O’Rourke continued:
“Digital Construction Week is the premier event for industry leaders, innovators, and experts to share ideas. Our programme is laser-focused on some of the most pressing issues the sector faces in sustainability, digitalisation and wellbeing. This year is also particularly exciting for us as the solutions we will bring to the table will have a genuine impact on how the sector addresses these issues and behaves in the future.”
Causeway’s mental health ambassador and former Everton Football Club legend Trevor Steven will also be speaking on day one at 2pm at the people and change theatre.
He’ll be discussing a new front-line industry survey looking at the mental health and wellbeing of construction workers. The research aims to explore views about the role that technology could play in helping to improve wellbeing on construction sites, while using the power of football to open up conversations.
On the final day of DCW, Causeway will host a session on the main stage at 2.30pm, exploring how to standardise data and join the dots across the construction lifecycle, ensuring that data flows seamlessly from left to right across the process and unlocks valuable and actionable insights.
