LEED has a pilot credit for using LCA in design, and the Athena Institute is offering free assistance to a limited number of design teams who pursue that credit using the Impact Estimator.
LEED MRpc63 is for whole-building life cycle assessment. Design teams can earn that credit by using the Athena Impact Estimator software to perform life cycle assessment for a reference building and then a final design. Read about the credit here. If you’d like our help, register for the credit and then get in touch with us.
For qualifying teams, we will provide help by phone or e-mail, and we will review your work. In return, we will ask you for feedback.
It’s easy to learn the Impact Estimator quickly – the interface is clear and support is available via embedded help screens and a user guide. We also have a series of short YouTube video tutorials. Get the Impact Estimator and find the user guide and tutorials here.
