Development of the LCAbyg tool: influence of user requirements and context

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceedingResearchpeer-review

Abstract

A 2014 Danish governmental building strategy introduced sustainability of buildings as one of five
focus areas for the future political work within the sector. Subsequently, a wide range of sector
stakeholders were involved in developing a tool to assess the life cycle environmental impacts of
buildings. Compliance with the guiding LCA principles and frameworks was important to developers
and stakeholders alike. However, extensive participation from stakeholders also generated a
multitude of additional user related requirements for the tool to balance and prioritise within the
restrictions of time and cost. The commissioning party and the politically related context of the tool
development thus showed to greatly influence the process and the outcome.
