MidlothianAchieving a low carbon building requires more than good design. A key theme to emerge from the Carbon Trust study Building the Future, today, is the concept of 'Better Buildings, used better' - reducing carbon emissions in schools requires both physical improvements to new and existing buildings as well as behavioural change. This section covers three areas related to the use of the building:

  • post occupancy evaluation;
  • managing the building; and
  • using the building as an educational tool.
