eTool uses a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) method to include both the “Embodied Energy” and the “Operational Energy” over the total design life of the building or development.
Most other assessment tools only assess the operational aspects and hence miss half of the equation when it comes to quantifying the total energy and carbon footprint of a design.
Further to that eToolLCD is web based, free and very user friendly. This enables us to ensure LCA becomes a standard design philosophy for the built form.
