Our Story

The story of eTool starts with two friends and engineers Richard and Alex. In 2009, a light conversation about sustainable buildings turned into a disappointing realization that there were discrepancies with sustainable buildings all around, with nothing around to help buildings perform better and quantify their sustainability. So, they decided to take matters into their own hands and in 2010, after an incredible amount of hard work, eToolLCD was born.

Since its inception, the eTool team has grown and has stretched from beyond Australia, reaching countries all over the world. With over 200 LCA’s under our belt and an impressive client list working on some fantastic projects, we’ve quickly become a global leader of LCA’s of the built form, and we’re excited to be at the forefront of the evolution of sustainable building design. For all of us here at eTool, it’s not just about creating the best Life Cycle Design software out there, and not just about building sustainably. It’s about simply building better.
