Life Cycle Assessment

Edify Energy – 12 Geddes St LCA

Edify Energy engaged Edge to assist their architect in exploring sustainability opportunities for one of its residential projects.

Edge conducted a scoping Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of 3 different designs:

1. A heavyweight concrete construction option.

2. A lightweight timber construction and

3. A hybrid.

The assessment uncovered some surprising results, including a marginally better overall life cycle impact profile for the concrete-based design. As well as helping to inform decisions on the overall design, the assessment was also used to guide the architect’s detailed material selections for construction.
