    Annually, the embodied carbon of building structures, substructures, and enclosures are responsible for 11% of global GHG emissions. Architecture 2030 sets ambitious targets that call for 40% embodied carbon reduction today, and 65% by 2030. This is a great challenge, but also a great opportunity for the global architecture and building community. By integrating embodied carbon reduction strategies into the design process, you can develop a competitive edge, expand your service offerings, and get involved early in the projects. This class will first walk you through the key steps to establishing that strategy - measuring and optimizing embodied carbon from early stages to post construction. It will then demonstrate how to automate the process using the integration between your existing design tools, like Revit or Dynamo, and One Click LCA with its manufacturer-specific data (EPDs), to deliver results complying with any green building certification schemes like LEED and BREEAM.

    Key Learnings

    • Integrate embodied carbon & LCA thinking into your BIM workflows
    • Automate the calculation and optimization process using One Click LCA’s integration with design tools, such as Revit.
    • Create custom Revit and Dynamo integrations for LCA using the One Click LCA API
    • Deliver results compliant with LEED, BREEAM and other certification schemes globally.
