Bio: Andres Gutierrez, Stok
An engineer by training (BS in Civil Engineering, MS in Structural Engineering), Andres is a Project Manager for the Sustainability Consulting team at Stok. His focus is on Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) and green building certifications – measuring the impact that structures and materials have on the carbon footprint of the built environment. In addition, he supports efforts to provide carbon reduction strategies for clients seeking to reinvent their real estate assets to meet aggressive decarbonization goals. Andres believes that embodied carbon analysis should become standard practice if we sincerely wish to address the climate crisis. He hopes that by bringing embodied carbon to the forefront of design discussions we will be able to build more sustainable cities and mitigate the harmful impacts the AEC industry has on our planet.
