Target: U value + Overheating + GreenCostPlan + VE + BoM + BoQ + EE + EC + SC + LCA = GBC


Can we:

  • Target carbon-back instead of pay-back?
  • Target Architect’s Green Cost Planning instead of QS’s violet cost price books?
  • Target competent building addressing U values, overheating and condensation risk as well as low embodied energy through to carbon in use?

Combining U values and other performance, with material’s carbon and LCA data with a bill of materials, labour, quantities and costs and we can engage with these targets, do real value engineering and monetise carbon.

GBC Green Building Calculator is on its way to combining all these issues, with many other functions and one day aims to grow into a BIM App.
