Ongoing use

Once a suitable model is opened, click on the One Click LCA™ button in the Add-Ins ribbon. 

The plugin allows you to filter data, map materials to any datasets, and identify carbon hotspots within the model. This allows users to cut down time required to import data in One Click LCA™ by 30%. 

When the mapping of the material is completed you can click the “Run LCA” button and you will be redirected to the cloud platform to see the results of your calculations. 

You will be able to choose the name and stage of the design, and import data from your Revit model into that design for your Life Cycle Assessment or Life Cycle Costing calculations. 

Once calculations have been run and you have obtained the results, you can download them and submit your report to the Green Building certification organization of your choice or share the results with your team.
