Guidance targets distribution centres
The second of five Target Zero guides, covering distribution warehouses, is due to be published shortly and will be available for download in pdf format from www.targetzero.info
The distribution warehouse guidance provides invaluable information for designers, construction clients and their professional advisors on how to design and construct sustainable warehouses.
Target Zero is a steel construction sector project designed to provide guidance on design and construction of sustainable, low and zero carbon buildings. Five non domestic building types are being analysed in the project funded by Corus and the BCSA.
A further three building types are being analysed, and these guides are due to be published later this year. Retail buildings is due in July, medium-to-high-rise offices in September and guidance on mixed use buildings will be published in November.
