Transport energy

Avoiding unnecessary transport journeys during construction in terms of the delivery of materials and the removal of site waste. In some cases, like the Wessex Water offices near Bath (see first edition) staff are obliged to use communal transport wherever possible. There is also the matter of location even though this will usually be outside the province of the architect. Access to good public transport should be a prime requisite in deciding location. There have been instances where corporations have relocated from city centres accessible only by public transport to highly energy efficient offices on out of town sites. This has encouraged a much greater use of cars resulting in a net increase in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
