LCA quantifies your carbon impacts

Whole-Building Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) helps you achieve LEED® credits (v4 and v3) and quantifies the environmental impacts of your whole building over it’s lifetime.

LCA used to be a complex and strenuous task, but with One Click LCA you can be done in no-time.

One Click LCA allows you to easily calculate life cycle impacts across the standard impact categories and compare those impacts to a comparable baseline building.

By automating LCA from your existing design data, you can be done with the assessment in just minutes. This allows you to use the results as a environmental design tool that provides you with key quantitive insights. The robust One Click LCA cloud software also supports various LEED credits with ready-to-use templates, summarized in the table below.
