One Click LCA aims to make the measuring of environmental impacts in the built environment easier and faster than ever before. The software allows users to calculate the Life Cycle Assessment of their building in just a few minutes by importing data that they already have such as bill of materials in an Excel or BIM model. This tool helps architects and builders to see their carbon footprint and other environmental impacts of their building project.
Before One Click LCA tool was developed, Life Cycle Assessments used to take days, if not weeks, which meant that very few companies and consultants were performing the prerequisite Life Cycle Assessment calculations. As a consequence, buildings were built without paying much attention to the carbon emissions of the project over its whole lifetime. Most companies did not use scientific methodology but relied on vague eco-friendly labels and instant fixes.
The solution is to process faster and easier construction Life Cycle Assessment information. Bionova Ltd has created software tool that enables builders and constructers to calculate their Whole Building Life Cycle Assessment in just a few minutes. This enables construction specialists worldwide to calculate the Life Cycle Assessment of their buildings in a time and cost-efficient way, and as a result, design greener building.
The innovative components of One Click LCA are that the software is cloud-based software and it has the biggest Life Cycle Assessment database on the market. One Click LCA has implemented cutting-edge automation technology, allowing users to import their data with just one click. This unique import capabilities help automate the Life Cycle Assessment process and quickly see the environmental impacts.
