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 moved all of our Energy Modeling to Green Living LLC. The models' cost, precision, and timeliness save us time to Design.
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.
