CAP'EM is an Interreg-funded project developing a low cost Life Cycle Assessment for 5 countries in NW Europe; assessing and cataloguing 100 eco products and 50 generic materials from SME manufacturers and developing a search engine for products in appropriate applications. GreenSpec Studio has been created to help mainstream designers select competent new build eco construction assemblies and populate them by choosing from 450 green products from GreenSpec product pages. This talk described GreenSpec’s ambitions to bring these outputs together, to develop intuitive interactive Excel tools for architects to carry out elemental and whole building LCA.
