Hosted by the National Ready Mix Concrete Association | Build with Strength
AIA-CES: 1 HSW LU (1 Hour) | 1 PDH | 0.1 CEU
When looking at the environmental impact of a building, it is important to assess every stage of the environmental life cycle, from material extraction and product manufacturing to building operations and maintenance through to end-of-life. Concrete offers many environmental attributes that help reduce the overall environmental life cycle impacts of a building. This presentation explores how life cycle assessment can be used to measure and lower the environmental impacts of buildings.
• Recognize how concrete can reduce the life cycle impacts of a building.
• Understand life cycle assessment (LCA) and how it can be used to help measure and reduce the environmental impacts of a building.
• Explore how LCA is used in the green building standards.
• Explore an example of how LCA software tools can be used to reduce environmental impact of a building.
