Collaboration across design and construction disciplines is key to achieving lower-carbon concrete. The prolific use of concrete and the high global warming potential of cement provides a significant opportunity in our shift towards net zero carbon.

Join Mithun building performance analyst Claire McConnell, and architect Logan Kelly for “The 3 C’s of Concrete: Carbon, Collaboration and Constructability” to learn about the varied roles and progress to date of architects, engineers, contractors and concrete suppliers in achieving embodied carbon reductions through integrated design. Affordable housing project Casa Adelante at 681 Florida, currently under construction in San Francisco, will be a featured case study.

Additional panelists include KPFF Consulting Engineers director of sustainable design Shana Kelley, and Skanska USA Building, Inc. sustainability manager Mark Chen.
