RESUMÉ

Absolute Sustainability Assessment of Buildings and Circular Construction Initiatives for Early Design Phase Decision Support

The project will develop specific benchmarks of building for environmental impact and resource consumption for use in an absolute sustainability evaluation. Furthermore, an early design LCA is developed to ensure that the design supports the environmental goals for the final life cycle evaluation of the finished building design. To secure that sustainability becomes a design parameter instead of an environmental reporting of the final design, the project will focus on the communication of the life cycle evaluations.
