Thanks Vaclav, Boris, and Anthony!
That sounds about par for what we expected from an LCA-focused tool.
Are you (or are others) familiar with studies demonstrating ability to reduce embodied carbon with no to little extra cost? One of our teams is concerned about the whole “this is new, so it will cost more” vibe.
We are understanding that real costing is best left to someone familiar with financial modeling. It would be great to get a snapshot of cost impacts. At the same time, perhaps architects’ focus may be best directed toward sharing about increased ability to measure and reduce embodied carbon - asking our contractors and estimators to partner with us in this exciting effort. However - it would help to have some data to back up the fact that less carbon does not always equal more cost.
