Buildings are one of the main drivers of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and their life cycle emissions need to be significantly reduced in order to address the unprecedented climate emergency. While there are numerous studies on zero operational energy and GHG emissions buildings, very few studies exist on buildings that aim to reach zero life cycl...
Achieving net zero life cycle energy and greenhouse gas emissions buildings is rare. This would entail not only covering operational energy use, but also embodied energy and displacing embodied greenhouse gas emissions in construction materials and renewable energy systems, across their supply chains. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the feasib...
This long-term and ongoing project aims to quantify the life cycle environmental and financial performance of apartment buildings in the Mediterranean in order to identify the most effective and affordable improvements. It uses case studies from Lebanon. The research uses primary data from a construction company to rely on the most reliable figures in terms of material quantities, floor plans, costs and others. The scope comprises embodied, operational and user-transport requirements. Life cycle assessment (LCA) and life cycle cost analysis (LCC) are conducted either at the whole building level, or on specific systems.
