Casework in LCA

Hello!

Does anyone have resources for including casework in a LCA? It cannot be included in Tally, so we are looking for a workaround to account for it as we have a large amount of casework in our project.

Thanks!

Hi Nicole,

Not directly related, but when LMN did our interiors embodied carbon analysis we used EPDs for laminate and MDF, multiplying by a quantity takeoff of the furniture system. We consider this a rough estimate only and do advocate for EPDs in the future. Casework could use a similar estimation method. I can share the EPDs we used if you want to email me: kanderson@lmnarchitects.com
