Life Cycle Design (LCD)
Life Cycle Design is a global benchmark for the design and use of a building. Life cycle assessment is the international standard for quantifying the environmental impacts of a building over its entire design life. Perth has been behind the times somewhat when it comes to such performance measures but we’re catching up fast. There are many commercial projects in Perth now embracing the system and it will only be a matter of time before it is adopted for residential buildings. Such performance analysis will one day set a benchmark for resale of a property. From commercial buildings to a residential home, LCD will become an integral feature in the design of every building.
