Welcome to the Low Impact Buildings (LIB) Project website.

This TSB and EPSRC funded project is focused on developing an integrated waste, carbon and cost model to help deliver future low carbon buildings. For more details of the project's aims and objectives, see Project Definition.

This is a challenging project that can only succeed with  close collaboration between academia and relevant private sector partners.

For this reason, the LIB project was championed by a strong, mulitidisciplinary team comprising academics, environmental experts, software developers, architects and quantity surveyors. As the project progresses we will also be engaging construction companies.
