Daylight Modeling

Green Living conducts Life Cycle Analysis to evaluate the environmental impacts of a building concerning six key elements, as required for LEED:

  • Global warming
  • Ozone layer depletion
  • Acidification potential
  • Eutrophication potential
  • The formation of tropospheric ozone
  • Depletion of non-renewable energy resources

 

We identify the building elements with the most detrimental environmental impact and assist the team in selecting materials that reduce environmental impact over the long term. In addition, we carry out LCA  in the design process that allows for evaluating various material options that play an important role in the progression of a global effort to reduce our ecological footprint.
