Abstract: Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) (DIN EN ISO 14040:2006 & 14044:2006) increasingly gains relevance in the building industry. The German Certificate for Sustainable Construction requires LCA. At the same time, increasing public pressure draws the planers attention to the life cycle perspective. Adequate LCA models and instruments are required to provide planners with reliable information on the environmental performance of their design. One detailed LCA model for residential buildings was obtained from a European project. In conjunction with extended LCA-databases, such models provide the necessary basis for life cycle based optimisation of planned buildings. The appropriate correlation between early estimations and detailed LCA results represents one major challenge to be met.
