WEBINAR: Life-Cycle Assenssment in Building Design & Construction

December 12, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

We’re excited to invite you to register for our upcoming December 12th webinar. During this one hour webinar, we will introduce the fundamental concepts of life-cycle assessment and how they’re framed in relation to the building design and construction industry.
You’ll also get the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session with Daniel Overbey from Ball State University and Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf when you tune in.

Life-Cycle Assessment in Building Design and Construction

*BNP Media is authorized by the IACET to offer 0.1 CEU for this program

The building construction industry produces a lot of waste—perhaps responsible for over a quarter of all material added to U.S. landfills today. This speaks to a design problem: our building products simply have not been designed for their total life-cycle.t
This course will cover the following learning objectives:

  1. Describe the magnitude of the waste stream associated with the U.S. building construction market.
  2. Define the basic framework for a life-cycle assessment.
  3. Identify the common forms of building product disclosure documents and their key differences in scope.

Explain the value of whole-building life-cycle assessment modeling versus single-attribute product specification tracking as part of a holistic approach to less adverse environment impacts of buildings.
