Architects and specifiers can now quote specific carbon impact figures
We are able to give externally validated carbon data for JJI-Joists using our PAS 2050:2011 carbon reporting model, giving architects and specifiers the confidence to quote specific carbon impact figures for designs incorporating James Jones's products. Timber stores carbon naturally and the production process requires relatively low energy inputs, thus a timber product, unlike most other mainstream building materials, will normally reduce the carbon impact of the structure it is used in as the carbon stored more than offsets the carbon generated in its production.
Carbon negative figures are available for individual building designs
We are able to produce a carbon negative figure for individual building designs where they incorporate JJI-Joists, based on the quantity and specification of JJI-Joists used, or we can produce a carbon negative number for contract supply based purely on the volume of material rather than a specific design.
For instance, the JJI-Joists used in a typical three bedroom detached house will have a carbon negative figure of almost 400kg.
Achieve better BREEAM scores
For architects and specifiers the ability to more accurately determine the specific carbon impact of a particular design is increasingly important, even more so when the carbon negative inputs of timber are taken into account, in achieving better BREEAM scores.
