Materials Analysis: Life-Cycle, Carbon, Health

Re:Vision supports the specification of sustainable materials through:

  • Materials Life-Cycle Analysis
  • Building Life-Cycle Assessment
  • Embodied Carbon Analysis and Comparison
  • Health/Toxicity Analysis
  • Red-List Materials Research
  • Responsible Material Sourcing and Specification Support

Featured Projects

Confidential Corporate Office | Sunnyvale, CA

Carbon benchmarking and recommendations for interior finishes, resulting in dramatically reduced embodied carbon.

Mt. Cuba Center (LCA) | Hockessin, DE

Evaluation of structural material choices (concrete SIPs, steel, and wood), resulting in a 37% lower global warming potential through the selection of a wood structure.

Port Monmouth Rd School | Keansburg, NJ

Whole-building Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA) for compliance with LEED v4.1 Building Life Cycle Impact Reduction and as a case study for the district to explore impacts of design decisions on the environment.

Muhlenberg College Education and Innovation Center | Allentown, PA

Material selection support and whole-building Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA) to demonstrate a reduction in embodied carbon through the use of a carbon-smart approach to materials and building enclosure.

ReFarm Café | Central PA

Design team and contractor training on materials vetting for toxicity and chemicals of concern, per the Living Building Challenge Red List.

Re:Vision’s research steps are very thorough and provide practical tips on how to manage the potentially overwhelming amount of information on a given product. The team provided useful lessons learned to help us understand how to avoid common pitfalls. One particular resource I found very beneficial was the comparison of differences between MSDS, SDS, C2C, HPDs, and Declare; this was the first time I’ve seen a simplified presentation of all of those different tools. I would recommend anyone involved in the building design community.
