Construction Management - CMGT Part-time Studies Course

School of Construction and the Environment

Course Details

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a technique used to evaluate how products and technologies contribute to environmental impacts from a life cycle perspective (eg. from cradle-to-grave, or from raw material extraction through materials processing, product manufacturing, distribution, use, and final disposal). This course will enable students to use the life cycle assessment (LCA) method to evaluate the environmental impact of construction projects, namely buildings, from a life cycle perspective.
