GS8

GS8 is a design-led development company with the aspiration to deliver Carbon Positive private housing by 2020. KLH Sustainability, along with a small team of forward-thinking design consultants, are developing a three-part model – embodied carbon, operational carbon and cost – that will be parametrically analysed and optimised to achieve carbon positive development, ideally at market rates. KLH Sustainability are responsible for developing and managing the embodied and operational carbon models of the test site and analysing the carbon impact of each design iteration. We facilitate integrated design workshops, engage team members for design optimisation and model input, and aim to develop a decision-making framework that can ultimately be rolled-out across all GS8 developments.
