Carbon Designer 3D: Why Early Optimization Matters

Excited to share our latest LCA tool at One Click LCA: Carbon Designer 3D.

Establishing realistic baselines for embodied carbon assessments is key to achieving successful, low-carbon designs in practice. However, it can be time-consuming to produce baseline designs, especially when few details are known about a building in the early stages of the design process.

Carbon Designer 3D addresses this challenge by rapidly generating realistic building material quantities and life-cycle assessments for common building typologies while requiring very few inputs from the designer. Designers can quickly compare designs, identify embodied carbon hotspots visually, and make early embodied carbon-reducing design decisions informed by this feedback.
