Environmental Impact & Cost Analysis
Discover a unique new integrated approach to material selection and cost of your building while gaining BREEAM credits.
Enables construction professionals to optimise the sustainability of their building design by analysing the embodied impact and life cycle cost of material/product choices, and operational energy efficiency.
A major advantage of these tools is the ability to get rapid feedback on design options so you can assess and reassess right from concept through to detailed design.
Environmental Impact & Cost Analysis will facilitate the improvement in design and decision making for both new design and retrofit projects.”
CAPITAL COST / COST PLANNING
Undertake a full cost estimation for the entire building with respect to capital cost. The outputs allow the you compare the tradeoffs in terms of cost among the selection of various constructions, materials or systems at the earliest possible design stage.
LIFE CYCLE ANALYSIS
LCA (Life Cycle Analysis) enables an evaluation of the environmental impact of the model constructions.
Several detailed datasets describing the environmental properties of constructions and materials provided by BRE are utilised to provide detailed output. The outputs allow the user to make key material or construction decisions and tradeoffs from early conceptual design right through to detailed design stages.
LIFE CYCLE COSTING
LCC (Life Cycle Costing) enables you to estimate the running cost associated with the building operation. This tool therefore not only analysis capital cost, but the cost of ownership over the life of a building. The outputs allow the user to compare the tradeoffs in terms of cost among a selection of various constructions, materials or systems at the earliest possible design stage.
