Life cycle assessment (LCA) is a tool used to evaluate the environmental impacts of a product, process, or activity throughout its entire life cycle, from raw material extraction to disposal.
In the building industry, LCA is used to assess the environmental impacts of the construction, operation, and decommissioning of buildings.
By understanding the environmental impacts of a building throughout its entire life cycle, designers and builders can identify opportunities to reduce those impacts and create more sustainable buildings.
Anavitor LCA is a life cycle assessment (LCA) software that integrates with building information modeling (BIM) and connects to local environmental databases. It uses manufacturers' environmental product declarations (EPDs) to accurately assess the environmental impact of building and infrastructure projects.
Anavitor LCA helps customers determine and reduce the environmental impact of their building and infrastructure projects, taking into account design, materials, and transportation. By integrating Anavitor LCA with building information modeling (BIM), the accuracy of life cycle assessment (LCA) is increased, enabling responsible, financially sound decision-making for all types of projects, including new construction, renovations, and demolitions.
Anavitor LCA adds extended capabilities for the user with needs beyond the two initial stages.
DesignLCA enables comparison of different design solutions with material choices and energy impacts in early stages, providing an understanding of how these choices affect the climate. DesignLCA calculates the building's lifecycle in steps A1-A3, which is the product stage with Global Warming Potential (GWP) values within building materials along with energy analysis in EcoDesigner STAR. Stages A4 and A5 are the building production stage and are a general calculation.
Anavitor LCA is a unique environmental calculation program that calculates the final design solution using steps according to established requirements/guidelines according to an LCA standard and actual values. With this calculation, a climate declaration is created according to the requirements of local authorities. Anavitor's LCA calculation compiles the project's environmental impact in detail for users with needs beyond the two initial steps in DesignLCA.
