MIT researchers develop inexpensive way to perform full lifecycle analysis of design choices as buildings are being planned
Typically, when architects or engineers design a new building, it’s only at the end of the process — if ever — that a lifecycle analysis of the building’s environmental impact is carried out. And by then, it may be too late to make significant changes. Now, a faster and easier system for doing such analyses could change all that, making the analysis an integral part of the design process from the beginning.
The new process is simple enough that it could be integrated into the software already used by building designers so that it becomes a seamless addition to their design process. Read complete MIT article here.
