Description

Description

Lifecycle Assessments (LCA) are gaining relevance as a way to minimize a building's environmental impact. This seminar will demonstrate how we can use Revit software to perform LCA on architectural projects at any stage of the design process using Tally software, a new add-in released in 2014. The session will acquaint the audience with LCA through a comprehensive review of key concepts and their relation to building materials. Instructors will give hands-on demonstrations of Tally in a Revit environment, conducting assessments ranging in scale from discreet studies appropriate for addressing early design phase considerations to design option comparisons and whole-building assessments. We will tie these assessments back to core LCA concepts, highlighting the magnitude of the impacts found through assessments as compared to the modeled operational impacts of the demonstration projects.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Architects, structural engineers, and environmental consultants seeking to leverage Revit to perform life cycle assessments.

Roderick Bates

Ryan conducts building performance analysis through the development of new software tools, workflows, and ways of envisioning data. His work provides critical feedback early in the design process, enabling iterative modeling of multiple design scenarios and addressing issues of shading, heat transfer, ventilation, operational energy, and environmental impact. Prior to receiving his Master of Architecture degree from Yale University, Ryan studied Chemistry and Russian at Amherst College, with a focus on molecular spectroscopy and experimental design and fabrication. At Yale, he was a teaching fellow in architectural drawing and structures, and he conducted research on tall building structural analysis, nation-scale development planning, and sustainability indexing. Ryan has worked for Ziger/Snead Architects and has taught architectural design at Yale and Princeton with Alejandro Zaera-Polo.
