One Click LCA

One Click LCA is a Building Life-Cycle Assessment and Life-Cycle Costing software that is used by construction experts, green building consultants, architects, investors, manufacturers and designers to design greener building, achieve certification credits, and create Environmental Product Declarations for building materials.

The software allows users to calculate Whole Building Life-Cycle Assessments easily and fast, thanks for a seamless automation process. Users can import their building data from their Revit or BIM model, gbXML Energy model, IESVE, DesignBuilder, Excel, or use the manual import within the cloud software to get a ready-made report in less than one hour.

With the biggest LCA database of building materials, One Click LCA can be used for calculations anywhere in the world: if a country does not have its own database of building materials it is possible to use generic data thanks to a local compensation mechanism that has been verified and approved by BRE.

One Click LCA is the highest rated LCA software for BREEAM, with a verified maximal Mat 01 score of 100%, and is compliant with more than 20 Green Building certification schemes, including:

You can check the full list here. The tool is also third-party verified for EN 15978, ISO 21931-1, ISO 21929-1 and for input data for ISO 14040/44 and EN 15804 standards.

It is also compliant with BREEAM UK NC 2018 and can achieve up to 10 Mat 01 credits.

Besides being used for construction and infrastructure projects worldwide by top performers like Skanska, Sweco, WSP, Arup, NCC, and many more, One Click LCA is also used by universities to promote the use of Life-Cycle Assessment among engineering and architecture students.

Bionova Ltd, the developer of One Click LCA, is involved in LCA standardisation worldwide, and has authored many studies on Life-Cycle Assessment standards, including a recent carbon roadmap for the Finnish construction industry.
