Cardinal LCA - Grasshopper plug-in for early-stage GWP calculation

Hello everyone!

My team from Harvard GSD recently developed Cardinal LCA, a beta (test) plug-in for GWP calculation in the early stages of design. The current trial version focuses on stages A1-A3 and analyzes the embodied impacts (Global Warming Potential, kgCO2e) using the EC3 and ICE 2019 database.

We would really appreciate any feedback/suggestions, and collaboration opportunities.
