Research Brief: Streamlined Embodied LCA of Residential Buildings

Chart from a CSHub brief detailing Streamlined Embodied LCA of Residential Buildings
June 15, 2015

Traditional life-cycle assessment (LCA) is time, resource, and data intensive. For complex systems like residential buildings, these demands can mean that assessments are carried out after important design decisions have already been made. CSHub researchers have developed a streamlined method that requires significantly less time and data than traditional methods, which can reduce expense and 
uncertainty earlier in the process. MORE
