AllLCA and Circular Construction

BUILDING LIFE design technologies – Life cycle and Circular BIM-based Design

BUILDING LIFE focuses on existing developments, initiated by Ruben Santos on his PhD thesis (supervised by António Aguiar Costa and José Silvestre). The original work created a plugin for Revit to calculate the LCA of a building.

Several scientific articles have been written on this subject. The aim is to improve the work already done and develop an optimization design tool that will be able to help the designer achieve a more efficient solution.

BUILDING Life is based on the “Carbon Footprint” methodological guide for the AEC sector carried out as part of the FoC – Future of Construction project, which defines the steps needed to decarbonize the sector and the sectoral agenda for carbon neutrality.
