Why use One Click LCA to comply with the Danish regulations – BR18?
The One Click LCA automated LCA tool allows you to comply with Danish regulations in a more simple and, above all, less time-consuming way.
Integrate with many BIM tools
Integrate One Click LCA with your design and BIM tools and save time. We support Archicad, Revit, Solibri and many more. You can import your building cost estimate or BIM model directly into One Click LCA. Read more about integrations.
Access the world’s largest database
The Danish regulations requires EPD’s or generic data from the generic Danish building material database. You can find both in One Click LCA:s database, however we recommend using EPD:s as to not be penalised by generic values that are normally higher than an EPD:s values.
Trusted by the industry leaders in Denmark
One Click LCA is a member of DI Byggeri
DI The Danish Construction federation.

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s included in the free trial?
Note, it is only our building LCA tool which is offered as a free trial. Our product and portfolio tools and our range of add-on features – such as Building Circularity Assessment, Carbon Designer, Life Cycle Costing – are not included in the trial, but you can request a demo of these tools.

Which life cycle stages does One Click LCA support?
However, in most of our tools that are targeted for whole building LCA for different certifications and calculation schemes, the life cycle stages available are restricted to match the requirement of the scheme in question.
Who usually uses the software?
Can One Click LCA help me attain certification credits?
Does One Click LCA integrate with other design tools?
One Click LCA integrates with Building Information Models in IFC2x3, IFC4, Revit, ArchiCAD and Tekla Structures formats. It integrates with all energy modeling software supporting gbXML format (including DesignBuilder and IES-VE). It also integrates with Microsoft Excel and other data formats. There is also a direct integration into IES-VE software.

Which databases are included in One Click LCA and which standards do they follow?
Find the list of current databases here. The system also contains EPD data that is not published under any of the above-mentioned databases. EPDs entered in One Click LCA database include detailed technical descriptions about building products and comply with EN15804 and/or ISO 14025 standards. All EU databases included comply with the EN 15804 standard and North-American databases comply with the ISO 14040/44 standard.
For several European and world building material producers, One Click LCA has available manufacturer specific data, which allows for highly precise calculation results.
For those who do not yet know which specific building product (manufacturer specific EPDs) they will use, One Click LCA has also country-specific average data (e.g. Ökobaudat and INIES).
If One Click LCA is used in areas where there is not yet a comprehensive local building LCA database available, we have a local compensation methodology that allows us to localize the data to get results that match the local manufacturing conditions for a specific area.
