Case study to show the six buildings with the lowest predicted annual CO2 emissions for their type

Services engineer ZEF
Annual predicted CO2 emissions 15.9kg/m2

The building’s compact form and open vertical interior space enables good daylight penetration, natural ventilation and passive cooling. Exposed concrete provides thermal mass. The 900mm diameter, 900m-long earth tube preconditions incoming air throughout the year. Solar thermal panels on the roof provide the majority of the building’s limited hot water requirements.
