Top 3 reasons you should consider Mat 01 and Man 05 credits for your BREEAM projects
If you have never worked with LCA or LCC credits you might not know why it would be a good idea to so. There are some simple reasons you should consider performing Life-Cycle Assessment and Life-Cycle Cost calculations for your project:
- BRE is planning to phase out the Green Guide completely. Don’t waste time and embrace the future now: Life-Cycle Assessment methodology will be required in all future BREEAM projects*
- BREEAM Refurbishment projects can completely replace the tedious Green Guide and earn up to 6+1 credits in Mat 01
- With automation, Life-Cycle Assessment is the most cost-efficient credit in BREEAM (worth up to 6 credits)
*Read this article by BRE Buzz about the future of The Green Guide. To automate Life-Cycle Metrics calculations, no solution is better than One Click LCA: the software has been given a 100% rating by BREEAM for their Mat 01 calculator for all of their schemes- The first ever LCA software to do so! This continues the long tradition of One Click LCA being the highest rated LCA software for several years now.
