This project investigates strategies to minimize embodied carbon in the construction of Vancouver's single-family homes. It includes three homes, all built to the Passive House standard, and assesses the suitability of three embodied carbon calculation methods. The results will guide building industry professionals towards a greater understanding of embodied carbon, how to calculate it, and how it can be reduced through careful consideration of construction materials and structural features.
