    Updated EPD functionality for accounting for construction waste

    Construction waste needs to be accounted for under EN15978, but most EPDs don't account for construction waste impacts either in additional material in modules A1-A3, or in disposal of construction wa... Read more...
    Design OptimisationLibraryReportingEDPs Motivation (why we need this feature): Construction waste needs to be accounted for under EN15978, but most EPDs don't account for construction waste impacts either in additional material in modules A1-A3, or in disposal of construction waste in A5. However, some do. We need a way of quickly identifying which EPDs are accounting for construction waste, and a software solution for accounting for construction waste when the EPD doesn't., Which regions need the feature?: Global, Which projects types does the feature support?: Buildings, Infrastructure, Fit Outs, Landscaping, Which ratings systems require the feature?: All schemes that refer to EN15978 - so essentially all.,

    LibraryReporting Motivation (why we need this feature): When the maintenace impact of a material (for instance) is quite high, we want to justify it easily in our reports. Or if we want to list the recycling rate of main materials from a circularity point of view. Currently, we need to check each element in each material individually, which is quite time consuming., Which regions need the feature?: Global, Which projects types does the feature support?: Buildings, Infrastructure, Fit Outs, Landscaping, Which ratings systems require the feature?: n/a,

    Bring back the life cycle inventory report
    9 months agoopen1
    This was a key feature that is no longer available. For compliance with EN15978 (LCA must be repeatable) we need the report back.
    Reporting Motivation (why we need this feature): Transparency, compliance with standards, Which regions need the feature?: Global, Which projects types does the feature support?: Buildings, Infrastructure, Fit Outs, Landscaping, Other, Which ratings systems require the feature?: All ratings require compliance with EN15978 and have some verification requirement. Full verification requires a full inventory report,

    Project and Structure Level reporting
    1 year agoopen0
    For large projects involving multiple buildings (such as precinct level projects) it would be very useful to be able to create reports at the structure, or project level. Precinct level projects co... Read more...
    Reporting Motivation (why we need this feature): An increasing number of precinct level projects are motivated to use LCA to understand their overall impact, but modelling an entire precinct in a single model is often impractical - particularly when RapidLCA can be used for a portion of the project. It makes more sense to model precincts as multiple structures within a single project and then generate a summary report at the project or structure level to understand the overall performance of the project., Which regions need the feature?: Global, Which projects types does the feature support?: Buildings, Infrastructure, Other, Which ratings systems require the feature?: Nill - possibly required for Witchcliffe Eco Village,

    Focus Indicator(s)
    1 year agoopen1
    Add a key indicator focus to the LCA reports
    Reporting Motivation (why we need this feature): It would be great if the LCA reports could focus on a specific indicator (or set of indicators), such as GWP, Water Use, or possibly some other indicator. This would be really useful for helping people to understand the LCA results better, and being less overwhelmed by the large quantity of information in the current summary tables. The selected "focus" indicator(s) could be reported separately in the exec summary, with separate tables just reporting that indicator. Everything else in the exec summary could remain, so all indicators are still reported, but possibly there could be an option to only report a focus indicator., Which regions need the feature?: Global, Which projects types does the feature support?: Buildings, Infrastructure, Fit Outs, Landscaping, Which ratings systems require the feature?: Not strictly required, but would make reporting for GS Buildings easier.,

    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 b... Read more...
    Reporting Motivation (why we need this feature): At the moment the results in that report are inconsistent with the quantities pulled out from the Analysis tab but it's also somewhat fiddly to get that information from the Analysis tab. This report is basically exactly what's needed except the quantities are not correct. Therefore it would be really convenient if this can be fixed., Which regions need the feature?: Global, Which projects types does the feature support?: Buildings, Infrastructure, Fit Outs, Landscaping, Other, Which ratings systems require the feature?: UK GLA currently but could be useful for anyone.,

    Include "Branch" Scenarios in LCA Reports

    When using the scenarios feature it is common to model scenarios that are not progressed in the main tree. Currently those "branch" scenarios are not included in the LCA and LCD Feedback reports. It w... Read more...
    Reporting Motivation (why we need this feature): The side branch scenarios provide valuable information. They may demonstrate alternative options, or ineffective strategies (which is also valuable information), but currently only the modeller themselves has visibility of these side branch scenarios. Clients and receivers of LCA/LCD Feedback Reports should also have this information to aid in decision making., Which regions need the feature?: Global, Which projects types does the feature support?: Buildings, Infrastructure, Fit Outs, Landscaping, Which ratings systems require the feature?: N/A,
