Technical Workshop on "Life Cycle Assessment Tool"Trainer: Mr Harish Borah, Advisor and Life Cycle Practitioner at ADW Developments
Life cycle assessment is a systematic compilation and evaluation of the environmental aspects & potential environmental impacts of a building throughout its life cycle. It begins from procurement of the raw material, construction, occupancy, end of life, recycling and final disposal. Because of the systematic nature of LCA and its power as an evaluation tool, importance of LCA is increasing as a lot of emphasis is laid on the measurable environment impact of sustainable project.
Despite its power and growing importance, LCA is viewed in some quarters as prohibitively tedious and expensive. However, there are today a number of user-friendly data banks and analytical tools that allow non-scientists to conduct comprehensive environmental assessments of products ranging from small samples to large buildings. Available LCA tools range from simple focused spread sheets to sophisticated software programs with professional support and access to some of the most comprehensive databases available.
The main objective of the workshop is to provide participants with the basic knowledge, hands on experience of how such analysis is carried out in the real world and how design decisions are arrived base on LCA analysis. The workshop can be attended by students and professionals from architecture, engineering and other interdisciplinary fields.
