sgch_lcaThe 8000m² St George Community Housing project boasts an energy-efficient design and a large photovoltaic system. While delivering much-needed community and affordable housing, the project is also targeting a 5-star Green Star rating.

Edge is undertaking a whole building life cycle assessment in line with the project’s green star rating, alongside the project’s main contractor, Ichor. An LCA Lite has been completed early in design to help influence design decisions.

The LCA Lite, coupled with life cycle costing (LCC) performed for the project, enable informed (environmentally and financially) decisions to be made in the design phase, which is essential to get the most sustainable outcomes for the client.
