Multi-disciplinary engineering and design consultancy, Hilson Moran, has enhanced its market-leading carbon expertise with the appointment of Mirko Farnetani as Senior Sustainability Consultant.
The carbon agenda has always been at the heart of the firm’s work and has never been more important as it strives to develop solutions to meet client needs and tackle the key issues the UK now faces in a climate emergency. Part of this is understanding embodied carbon and addressing it in a more innovative way. Mirko’s appointment helps drive this agenda.
An acknowledged expert in whole life carbon and building life cycle assessment and a qualified Architect with over 13 years’ experience, Mirko joins the Whole Life Embodied Carbon Workstream team. This group has developed a roadmap setting out best practice for developments in the UK, created technical guidance for designers and developers and is currently preparing guidance for the GLA to inform the implementation of its draft London Plan.
Previously, he worked for the BRE Research & Strategic Advisory Group where he was involved in the Building as Material Banks (BAMB 2020) research project which aims to enable a Circular Economy approach at building level by integrating Environmental Assessment, Economic Assessment, BIM, ‘Materials Passports’, Reversible Building Design and Social Values.
