First Target Zero guidance now available

Posted on by in News

The first of five Target Zero guides, covering secondary schools, has been published and is now available at 

The schools guidance provides invaluable information for designers, construction clients and their professional advisors on how to design and construct sustainable secondary schools.

The Target Zero school is based on a recently constructed building, Christ the King Centre for Learning secondary school in Knowsley, Merseyside. The building was ‘stripped back’ to basics so that all additional energy efficiency measures could be assessed for their benefit and cost above the ‘base case’ model.

Target Zero is a programme of work, funded by Corus and the BCSA, to provide guidance on the design and construction of sustainable, low and zero carbon buildings in the UK.

A further four non-domestic building types are being analysed, and these guides are due to be published later this year. Distribution warehouses will be published at the end of May, retail in July, medium-to-high-rise offices in September and finally mixed use buildings in November.
