Abstract

Globally designers are concentrating on minimising the impact their buildings make on the environment. Although many claim their buildings to be sustainable, unless an objective analysis is carried out, it is not possible to determine the impact that a particular building has on the environment. This paper describes a method that has been developed at the University of Auckland for a detailed life cycle analysis of an individual house in New Zealand based on the embodied and operating energy requirements and life cycle cost over the useful life of the building.
