Abstract: Life cycle assessment (LCA) is a tool to determine the environmental impacts by the life cycle of a product or service from cradle to grave. LCA of a building includes raw material extraction, material manufacturing, construction, operation and end-of-life phases of the building. The objective of this project is to develop an LCA model for buildings in Singapore by accounting the input (i.e. material resources, fuel consumption etc.) and output (i.e. resources depletion, greenhouse gasses emissions etc.) during material production, construction, and end-of-life phases of a building in Singapore. An LCA study was done on a 2-storey laboratory in School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, NTU, Singapore using SimaPro software.
