Different modules associated to an EPD A1-A3 or A1 ->D???

Easy to input data and clear instructions, ability to hide parts of the table so it is clear to read/ understand from someone who hasn’t done this before. Great to have for projects which aren’t BIM. Definately u-value calculator and condensation. Data sets of materials is good so you can easily click on a material you are including in your build up

life- cycle cradle to cradle calculator for all operational and embodied carbon in a project for a standard building life.
Tim Chapman
48:52
Life cycle data
Zana Dean
49:06
You need a demolition calculator- as many schemes start with a demolition/ site clearance
Natalie Webster
49:08
Calculator that works for existing buildings as well as new build
Sophie Bates
49:10
Ability to flip between different standards eg building regs/ lets/ RIBA once information infilled
Shu Architects
49:12
Sequested Carbon and condensation calcs
DJ Lee
49:28
yes - full DfD implications
ClareGregory
49:33
Easy access to data sets of manufacturer's information which gives clear concise data
Nathan Oliver
49:42
Easy to understand summary comparisons in simple English, jargon free, that clients not familiar with building / industry speak can understand and relate to.
Thomas Robinson
49:55
Clear difference between LCA and EPD. What standard is it to to enable fair comparison.
DJ Lee
49:58
yes - full EPD life-cycle C2c
sue churchill

Something that has consistent language and metrics with RIBA Climate Challenge roadmap - make it as simple as possible for maximum uptake
Ciaran Davis-Wall
50:31
Being able to interrogate the excel spread sheet. e.g. PHPP good, GLA SAP10 calculator bad.

We've been looking for a tool to calculate embodied carbon for some time. We've been using FCBS Tool but it is limited in that you can't put in bespoke materials so would be good to have one that can input bespoke materials and incorporates data on individual materials and common build ups..
Cherie Yeo
52:10
Individual Products / materials but also common building fabric build ups for immediate overview of carbon cost aligned with cost estimates for early strategic design direction - thanks
Claire Humphreys
52:15
Yes to existing buildings. Proving the benefits of retrofit
Tim Chapman
52:25
Simple summary sheets for client buy-in
Ian McKay
53:48
A means of logging route miles in CO2e impacts.
DJ Lee
55:53
need ability to interrogate for Pollution, Climate degradation and on Biodiversity/Ecosystems as well
Ralf Thiede
56:35
In use data to allow offsetting capital costs against potential savings in operational cost.
Sophie Bates
01:03:37
Can you use it for a plan that is stepped in plan? Often domestic houses/ extensions are -thanks
Cath
01:15:51
. For Brian where has the information/data come from that you have put in here?
Cath
01:16:33
That question s from Cath Hassell!
Steve Taylor
01:18:58
Is airtightness included in the calculator? How are ventilation and infiltration heat losses taken inti account?
Green Register
01:19:02
useful link from Simon at ASBP https://www.historicenvironment.scot/archives-and-research/publications/publication/?publicationid=2de84deb-fc40-4ab0-a8cb-a59400b7112c
Natalie Webster
01:24:15
Does the calculator version 2 already work for retrofit?
Melissa Merryweather
01:25:38
Is HQM one of your standards referenced
DJ Lee
01:26:24
Is this calculator ready for attracting some serious money to turbo charge full development soonest?
DJ Lee
01:26:45
...and can this excellent tool be profiled in margins of COP26 to highlight art of the possible
DJ Lee
01:27:31
Good to hear that Brian.
Claire Humphreys
01:28:05
Sorry need to go but very interesting
David Clare
01:29:55
I need to go, but thanks to Brian, and TGR, for this helpful session
Natalie Webster
01:32:45
Thank you Brian really interesting
Rob McGinnes
01:35:39
Thank you Brian and TGR
ClareGregory
01:35:54
Many thanks. Looks like a really interesting tool
Ciaran Davis-Wall
01:35:58
Thank you
