Microdesk, a leading provider of BIM, Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) and Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) services, announces a new partnership with One Click LCA, the world’s leading construction Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) software provider.
Building LCA is a science-based methodology for quantifying the lifetime environmental impacts of a building and One Click LCA makes the assessment easy since the science is embedded in the tool. One Click LCA helps to measure and reduce the environmental impacts of buildings, achieve green building certifications, and comply with regulations that are nowadays a mandatory part of planning in many countries.
The environmental targets the construction industry is working to meet also extend to the products used to build its projects. Thus, manufacturers have begun to meet the increasing need to produce Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) to reliably quantify and communicate the lifetime environmental impact of their products. One Click LCA’s Product LCA and EPD solution provide manufacturers with an easy solution to deliver third-party verified EPDs based on U.S. and international standards.
“Joining forces with One Click LCA gives Microdesk a tremendous opportunity to help our clients achieve and accelerate their goals to decarbonize the AEC industry and support sustainability,” said Michael DeLacey, Chief Executive Officer, Microdesk. “We are committed to providing the most effective and innovative technologies and tools and One Click LCA delivers that with software that adds value to all facets of planning and building while supporting the environment in a meaningful way.”
“One Click LCA’s mission is to power the makers of a zero-carbon future and addressing the lifecycle impact of buildings and materials is at the heart of what we do,” said Panu Pasanen, Chief Executive Officer, One Click LCA. “Decarbonizing construction requires a whole-life carbon approach across the value chain. Through our partnership with Microdesk and Symetri, we make our LCA offering available for a larger number of companies and with their extensive sales and consultancy team, we ensure the customers’ success in achieving a carbon-free future. This partnership is a remarkable step ahead to accelerate the decarbonization of the construction and manufacturing industries.”
