Brochure

The orientation towards a Sustainable built environment has become very important in the last decades. International standards and different methodologies have been developed for the evaluation and design of Sustainable buildings. In the last years the focus is laid on LCA of environmental aspects.

This Mini-Symposium provides the opportunity to disseminate and discuss experiences regarding environmental LCA of residential and non-residential buildings.

Special topics are:
- Methodological approaches for new buildings, existing buildings and retrofitting
- Ecological building materials and importance for the overall Life Cycle Performance
- Energy demand for operation and importance for the overall Life Cycle Performance
- Implementation and demonstration projects: Optimisation of the Life Cycle Performance for new buildings and retrofitting
