Integration of LCA tools in BIM toward a regenerative design.

In the case of regenerative processes, design can receive significant benefits from information that can be obtained by applying the life cycle assessment methodology. The LCA (life cycle assessment) approach can be implemented both for a single...

The Embodied Carbon Review - Embodied carbon reduction in 100+ regulations and rating systems globally

The growth of global urban population drives unprecedented construction, resulting in embodied carbon emissions from new buildings alone to excess of 100 gigatons by 2060. If all construction activity, including infrastructure and renovations, are...
