Optimized early-stage life cycle assessment of buildings -Developing a tool enabling early-stage parametric life cycle assessment

Abstract In the early stages of a building project, there is low quantity and quality of data regarding building materials while the ability to influence the environmental impact is high. Easy ways of assessing environmental impact of materials in these stages can make a big difference and shift buildings’ contribution to global warming towards a more sustainable track.
