Achieving carbon neutrality by the year 2050 is both a goal and a duty for the human race. In order to create buildings and cities that preserve the beauty of ature, promote a healthy life, and are environmentally friendly, Yasui Architects & Engineers, Inc. will work on the basis of carbon neutrality and zero emissions. With ESG and TCFD (Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures) in mind, we will accelerate our and our clients’ institutional efforts toward realizing a arbon-neutral society, following the guidelines on our stance below. For more information, please see the news release.
In consonance with the global effort to realize a decarbonized society by 2050, the Japanese government has developed a roadmap for ensuring ZEB (Net Zero Energy Building) in new buildings on average by 2030. In order to achieve a sustainable world, Yasui Architects & Engineers, Inc. as a “ZEB planner,” will work closely with society to pursue ZEB, drawing on our extensive experience in designing and consulting on green architecture.
We take action that makes use of local characteristics and considers the environment, by using clean energy that doesn’t cause emissions of CO₂ and other greenhouse gases, and using energy obtained from solar, wind, geothermal, and other natural sources.
We offer proposals that allow clients to actively create their own energy, using systems such as solar power generation and gas cogeneration, to ensure their energy security.
Applying BEMS (Building Energy Management System) optimizes interior environments and energy performance, and contributes substantially to CO₂ emission reduction. In small and medium buildings, which are the majority of buildings by number, the users themselves need to be aware of energy saving, and to put that awareness into action.
The use of timber suited to local climatic conditions, such as temperature and humidity, extends the lifespans of buildings and leads to reduced CO₂ emissions in manufacturing and transportation, helping to suppress climate change.
In preparation for adoption of options such as ZEB, CASBEE, and leading projects for sustainable buildings, we make proposals that deliberately build these options in from the initial project planning stage, and our specialist staff submit applications to certification agencies.
These kinds of planting provide healing, scenic beautification, and relaxation effects, in addition to blocking climate change by suppressing the heat island effect. We contribute to their full adoption and related care for the environment.
We use BIM from the initial stages of design, and run simulations of sun and shade, wind, and thermal environments, in order to provide project stakeholders with accessible explanations, and lead the way to optimum design and rapid consensus formation.
