Book Description

The adoption of BIM by the construction industry signals readiness for the integration of building-level LCA in design. BRE has responded through the recognition of IMPACT-compliant tools (and equivalent) in BREEAM schemes.
This Information Paper begins by introducing embodied impacts and how they are measured using LCA. This is followed by a review of the key themes and advantages of building-level LCA, integration in BIM and BREEAM.
