New video helps explain BLP's Butterfly low carbon design & decision tool

In response to the government's agenda for sustainable design - in particular the TSB call for design and decision tools for low carbon construction - BLP has created project 'Butterfly'. BLP is collaborating with Willmott Dixon, UCL Energy Institute and University of Cambridge Centre for Sustainable Development to create this IT aid to calculate life cycle cost and the environmental impact of the design and components for both new build and refurbished residential buildings.

Butterfly will help to simplify the approach to two of the key issues facing our industry, reducing carbon and energy use and the drive towards Building Information Modelling, both of which are key Government targets.
