Today – Jan. 15 – is the final day to sign up for the upcoming Carbon/Life Cycle Analysis workshop, presented by Wood WORKS! Jan. 21 at the University of British Columbia Okanagan campus in Kelowna and Jan. 22 at UBC’s Point Grey campus in Vancouver.
Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) is used to measure the life cycles of the materials and systems involved in a structure and how they impact the environment. LCA has been recognized in most major green building rating systems as an important tool to evaluate and reduce the embodied impacts of construction, including transportation of materials.
Since the City of Vancouver now requires embodied carbon impacts to be reported for all rezoning and Vancouver Affordable Housing Agency projects, this course is vital for those wanting to be well-informed about green building processes. Participants will also learn how to use important LCA tools, including the Athena Impact Estimator.
This workshop is ideal for architects, engineers, contractors, sustainable design consultants and building, planning and regulatory officials.
