Input: Bill of Materials & Quantities (along with possible alternative materials such as concrete which uses fly ash, a waste product from power production as a cement extender. From a sustainability perspective this reduces the need for energy intensive cement production). Work Schedule e.g. Fuel consumption by construction equipment. HVAC, Services and Fittings. Utilisation schedules.
Data is entered into existing interactive case studies to determine the environmental impact (in terms of the sustainability and energy use) of design and material alternatives.
A developer mode exists for those who wish to add their own interactive case studies and findings to the knowledge embodied in the existing case study list. This feature can only be accessed by obtaining a developer password from firstname.lastname@example.org
In developer mode equations that relate to material use and service use such as water and electricity are generated. These are typically associated with stages in the life cycle of the building typical stages. Includes but are not confined to: specification, construction, appliances, fitout, utilisation, transportation, decommissioning/recycling, and material transport.
Output: Output is in graphical and table form showing the environmental impact of each stage in terms of: resource energy use in GJ, GGE in tonnes of equivalent CO2, SPM, NMVOC, Water, NOx, and SOx. Base Material Data and a Bill of Material Quantities are also reported.
