    • Critical Issues When Comparing Whole Building & Building Product Environmental Performance 

      Miller, T. Reed; Gregory, Jeremy; Kirchain, Randolph (2016-10-17)
      Guides, standards, product category rules, and environmental product declarations have emerged to evaluate environmental impacts within the buildings sector. These efforts have certainly moved the field forward, but as of ...
    • The Effects of Inflation and Its Volatility on the Choice of Construction Alternatives 

      Lindsey, Lawrence; Schmalensee, Richard; Sacher, Andrew (MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub, 2011-08)
      Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) is the standard method for costing long-lived construction projects. The LCCA process determines the full costs of mutually exclusive construction options, finding the project design with ...
