As a user, rather than using proprietary product(s) from a particular company (Autodesk), I would like to be given the option to import data in Industry Foundation Classes (IFC).
The EPD’s could be included with the other templates in the main design and templates tab, instead of separately in the EPD tab. This will create a better overview of the model and avoid it being overlooked.
It would be helpful to have a GLA or RICS mode for projects, in which the templates have custom parameters that are aligned with the technical requirement of GLA and RICS, such as transport distances and service life.
As a user, I would like to be able to access my eToolLCD Organisation Portal to aggregate Whole Life Carbon assessments results from major developments, refurbishments and standing assets. This includes my own own developments and joint venture developments
Currently when you make any changes to the reference/BAU design, you need to be repeat these changes in all subsequent scenarios / cloned designs. It would be super handy to have the option to automatically apply any changes to these subsequent scenarios or other designs. Could be a ‘recording’ with the option to apply to […]
Warehouses are demanding more and more LCAs and there is no specific function on the “building funtion” list specific. “Distributin centre” would be other good option.
As a user, it would be really helpful if the Materials Inventory Summary Report generates accurate data. The figures in the report currently do not match the figures in the Analysis tab. Please find below the differences between the Analysis tab figures and the ones from the report.
As a user, for the times when I need to update an already certified Proposed Design, it would be very convenient if I’m able to create another long scenario branch off an existing one so that I can avoid creating a whole new scenario tree with a new Reference & Proposed Design that both need […]
Reporting templates following the requirements of the new GS Buildings rating: – Upfront Carbon: treatment of carbon sequestration – Life Cycle Impacts: normalisation and weighting, future decarbonised grid options. eTool to approve eToolLCD automated reports with GBCA to streamline the process and avoid transferring data into GBCA calculators.
Sometimes as I’m importing my templates, I realise that I need to create a custom template to match with an import item. It would be very useful if I can refresh the template library in the import page without needing to restart the whole import process again so that I can assign the new template […]
I need to be able to easily distinguish and identify different lines when importing my inputs from Revit. At the moment, the interface is visually too homogeneous and easy to mix up the different line items.
I would like EPDs to be locked once they’re made public.
Allow all users connected to an organisation to access each others’ templates that they have created. This could work in two ways: – In the form of ‘Organisation Templates’ which every user under the organisation would have access to, and these would be set up by members within the organisation; Or – Adding the user […]
It would be useful when reusing materials/templates from a previous structure (i.e., raised access flooring in an office refurbishment), to have an option where a template can be selected which doesn’t account for the initial embodied impacts, but continues to model the impacts of any replacements required during the service life of the building.
As a user I would like to choose the Imperial units as a system of measurement.
