Our Clients

“LCA of whole buildings mark a step change in our approach to environmental sustainability. eTool made it easy for us to set a benchmark in whole of life environmental impacts that is both compliant with leading international standards and also recognized under the Green Star rating tool. A clear understanding of absolute impacts at aggregate and detail level is essential for identifying hotspots and exploring the real benefits of improvement opportunities. I highly recommend integrating eTool at earliest project stages to support systems thinking and inform decisions.”

“LCA was a logical inclusion for all of the projects and has made it easy to get a full understanding of the environmental performance of the design. eTool is paving the way for the next era in sustainable development with their innovative eToolLCD software. Their vision and approach meant they fitted in seamlessly with the project team and ensured that we keep up to speed with global advancements in ESD.”

“It was great to be able to put together the full Life Cycle model of the design and get a detailed understanding of the embodied and operational environmental impacts across a range of metrics. Using eTool made what would have been a very complex process manageable and added valuable information to the project.”

“I have been using eTool on a number of projects over the past year inclusive of a major supermarket, Green Star Projects and a sustainable housing community in Victoria. I have found it much easier to work with (compared to other programs and in-house tools) and I like the online user interface. The software was easy to pick up and the team at eTool have been very helpful during training sessions and through the certification process. I like the fact that it is a dynamic program which is continually improving and growing.”

“Richard and Alex have been great to work with on our office project and we are looking forward to working with them on future commercial and residential projects. They are always willing to share their knowledge and continually look at how things can be improved. Great job.”

“eToolLCD is a powerful software package that enables designers to truly understand the total carbon footprint of their buildings be it residential or commercial. It allows consultants and sustainability practitioners to provide quantifiable and accurate advice to clients on how best to create a sustainable and affordable design.”
