Planners and architects who want to create buildings in a sustainable way are confronted with many questions about the impact of the materials they choose. Evaluating product impacts early in the design phase, enables smarter material selection, and ultimately the construction of better, high-performance buildings. Every building is unique and needs an individual analysis to illustrate the environmental impact and sustainability performance as well as to identify optimization potentials.
Through an extensive building LCA model, PE INTERNATIONAL offers comprehensive analyses for every type and size of building in order to illustrate the ecological dimension of the planning and the performance. Corresponding to the planning stage and the question, any kind of analysis can be conducted, from a first overview or “screening” to a detailed analysis of the building. With our GaBi software and training, you can conduct whole building LCAs as part of your practice.
Tally™ application for Autodesk® Revit®
Another solution for whole building LCA is the New Tally™ application for Autodesk® Revit®. It is the only application to be fully integrated into Revit, providing architects, engineers, and building professionals insight into how materials-related decisions made during design influence a building’s overall ecological footprint. Backed by the rigor and credibility of GaBi data from PE INTERNATIONAL, the application enables Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) on demand, documenting information across eight life cycle impact categories that align with LEED® v4 and other rating systems.
