Life Cycle Assessments for Life Cycle Design

LID Consulting recently delivered a dwelling LCAs (Life Cycle Assessment) for leading sustainability focussed architecture firm Steffen Welsch Architects. As always, the process enlightens and changes the focus and elements designers include in subsequent projects.

The process takes the key site, building and design detail features and areas, and estimates the embodied carbon of all materials during the critical A1-A5 stages of construction. It then goes further to also consider the operational energy, maintenance/repair/replacement and demolition phases of the full lifecycle of a development.

Our goal is to estimate what is required to build developments that are carbon neutral / net zero emissions over their full cradle to grave or cradle to cradle lifecycle.
