Life cycle carbon analysis of a six-storey residential building

Publisher:MPA The Concrete Centre

This guide provides details of a whole-life carbon assessment of an apartment building, carried out using life cycle analysis (LCA). Two sets of designs were developed for functionally equivalent concrete and CLT versions of the building. This document provides a wealth of information derived from the study on the relationship between embodied and operational carbon, and the interplay between different building materials and systems.
