Guidance for Target Zero®
Target Zero, the joint BCSA and Corus initiative aimed at making zero carbon buildings a reality, will publish its first guidance document later this year.
The £1M three-year project will look at five major building types (schools, warehouses, offices, supermarkets and mixed-use) and will generate fully costed solutions demonstrating how to achieve the three highest BREEAM ratings and meet the anticipated changes to Part L of the Building Regulations.
Guidance will be produced for each building type, with the schools guidance document due to be available late 2009. The other four guidance documents will appear approximately every three months until all building types have been covered.

Target Zero will provide designers with the guidance they need to meet emissions reduction targets towards the aspiration of zero carbon by 2019.
