New Study quantifies the carbon impact of Cat A fit out 12.03.24

AHMM has published a new study, titled ‘Fit Out – Rip Out’, which aims to quantify the potential carbon impact of Cat A fit out in commercial office buildings. The report challenges an industry standard approach to the design, construction, and marketing of speculative office space, and examines whole life carbon impact of Cat A fit out related to tenant lease cycles.

Dr Craig Robertson, Head of Sustainability at AHMM said: “AHMM’s Building Performance Team carries out analysis on all aspects of the buildings we design, and central to our role is sharing knowledge across the different project teams. Internal discussions and images of brand new Cat A materials being ripped out and discarded prompted us to start investigating the carbon impact of Cat A fit out.

This report outlines the drivers of the process and, for the first time, quantifies the potential impacts in both upfront and life cycle carbon terms. The data from our study illustrates the scale of the problem, and by sharing these findings beyond AHMM we hope to provoke conversations across our industry that lead to meaningful change in the way that we develop, market, and occupy our office buildings that responds to the climate emergency.”
