Embodied Energy

It is well proven and recognised that lightweight tensile structures, by their very nature, consist of fewer material elements and therefore have lower embodied energy and resource impacts than other more common construction forms.

Lightweight tensile structures have clear environmental benefits in terms of resource demands and depending upon the design, often offer additional environmentally beneficial outcomes.

Quantification of embodied energy reductions vary depending upon the design and a comparison of the materials proposed for each individual project. For information specific to your proposal, contact Innova International.
