The Environmental Performance in Construction (EPiC) initiative is the culmination of a four year, multi-institutional research project funded by the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council.
The EPiC Database is a comprehensive and consistent open-access Life Cycle Inventory of environmental flow coefficients for construction materials. The database contains over 850 coefficients that can be incorporated into existing Life Cycle Assessment workflows and processes.
Listed below are a range of resources related to life cycle assessment (LCA) and improving the environmental performance of construction projects. This includes open-access software, academic articles and additional resources published by the EPiC team.
