ASPA publishes carbon footprinting factsheets for architectural cladding products.
In an effort to help the construction industry obtain more accurate, representative and realistic carbon footprinting data, ASPA has published detailed carbon footprinting factsheets covering brick-faced and reconstituted Portland stone architectural precast cladding, with a third to follow shortly covering precast reinforced structural concrete. These will then be followed by Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) in accordance with EN 15804 for architectural and structural concrete.
ACA and SPA become ASPA
The Architectural Cladding Association (ACA) and the Structural Precast Association (SPA) merged in 2014 to become the new Architectural & Structural Precast Association (ASPA). As a product association of British Precast, ASPA will continue to raise the profile of the industry and of its members who produce architectural and structural precast concrete whilst providing technical information, advice and support to members and users.
