This research summary, published in November 2016, presents CSHub-conducted life cycle assessments (LCAs) of multiple building designs in three building categories: single family, multifamily, and commercial. For each category, two code-compliant designs were analyzed: wood and concrete two-story single-family homes, wood and concrete four-story multifamily buildings, and steel and concrete 12-story commercial buildings.
