What students have said about One Click LCA

“One Click LCA was even better than I imagined. It is truly one of the best programs I’ve ever worked with and I recommended my school to buy the program for future use.”

Mohammadkarim Moucho

BIM Architect, Jönköping University

“I feel like One Click LCA has helped me a lot during my bachelor thesis. It is easy to learn and you get your results really fast. If you are reasearching within the field of LCA or LCC I would truly recommend you to use One Click LCA”

Adi Fetahagic

Jönköping University

“Gabi was also a tool I discovered for assessing the LCA of both materials. However, I found there to be limitations compared to the efficient LCA tool that is One Click LCA, it is a great tool that gathers BIM data and is very useful for the future.”

Vandross Ikoro

Junior Architectural Technologist, Jones Engineering Group

“Your software is very impressive and while I had challenges with data and other software on my side, One Click LCA was intuitive and highly detailed. I hope to use your software in the future.”

John Smyth

Junior Energy Engineer , Waterford Institute of Technology

“One Click LCA was an extremely useful tool for us, working on a LCA on an office building in cross laminated wood. The program is easy to use, and carries many useful functions and different choices which makes it applicable to any life cycle assessment project. It is safe to say that our bachelor thesis would not be that it eventually became, had it not been for One Click!”

Elise Eikeskog, Hanne Sørebø, Kaja Johnsen

Students, Western Norway University of applied Sciences

“It was a very good learning experience to use the One Click LCA tool: the main advantage is that I didn’t need to carry out the calculations of quantities, and I also liked the intuitive feel of the tool, the ease of use and simple clear layout.”

Kunal Gaidhankar

BIM Architect, HafenCity University Hamburg, Germany
