Abstract :

Life cycle assessment has become an important tool for determining the environmental impact of materials and products. It is also useful in analysing the impact a structure has over the course of its life cycle. The International Organization of Standardization’s 14040 series specifies how to perform a formal life cycle assessment in which the materials, construction, use, and demolition of a building are quantified into embodied energy and carbon dioxide equivalents, along with representation of resource consumption and released emissions. These results are useful to architects, structural engineers, contractors, and owners interested in predicting environmental impacts throughout a structure’s life.
