Technical Notes

Please note that as of December 2020, the following minor methodology improvements have been made.

The latest eToolLCD release included the following updates to our construction equipment library:

  • Re-allocation of construction equipment from our “People” category to the “Equipment” category where the item was a hybrid of “People” and “Equipment”.
  • Removal of the trade staff component of construction transport to align with EN15804 and EN15978
  • Improved assumptions of transport weights
  • Improved equipment cost assumptions
  • Improved assumption regarding the “maximum operating time between trips to the depot”

The items affected were (note that many of eToolLCD’s detailed library templates in the “Default” LCI sources contain these items):

  • Large Electrical Equipment (eg mixer)
  • Electrical Hand Tools (eg power drill)
  • Trade Staff (Large Elect Equipment)
  • Trade Staff (Small Electrical Equipment)
  • Remote Trade Staff (Small Electrical Equipment)
  • Trade Staff (Transport Only)
  • Trade staff, Boiler Maker

NOTE: The changes above have not been applied retrospectively to historical/existing designs to ensure consistency in your results. Only library templates and benchmarks have been updated. Any new templates that you add to an existing design will have the updated data.

Implications:

These changes will only affect newly created designs, or changes to existing designs (where these templates from the library are added to designs). There will be a reduction in impacts associated with A4 (equipment transport). In some cases this will be a significant reduction.

The following are some rare cases where the transition could lead to inaccurate conclusions drawn from eToolLCD. Note that in the below cases, ‘equipment transport’ must first be a significant item which is atypical.

  • A “Business As Usual” or “Proposed” design has already been modelled prior to the update and the user then makes changes to the design by swapping templates to see the affect of those swaps. The template comparison will not be fair if the equipment transport in those templates were significant.
  • Comparing a new design (created from scratch) against a historical design created prior to the update.

If you would like to migrate your historical designs to the new methodology, please raise a Support Ticket and we can schedule this for you.
