What do new requirements for climate declarations for buildings mean for municipal officials and construction developers? How can LCA/LCCA be used for climate calculations to support sustainable urban development? What are the challenges, and how can digitalisation help overcome these? These are some of the issues discussed during a webinar organized by the Luleå University of Technology in cooperation with partner organizations within the project ESBE- Enhanced Sustainability of Built Environment by Collaboration and Digitalization.
The webinar was moderated by Susanne Engström, a researcher in innovation och change in construction at Luleå University of Technology, and include presentations by:
- Sofia Lidelöw, Luleå University of Technology, a researcher in environmentally sustainable building and renovation. Topic: Climate calculation and declaration of buildings, an overview of recent developments in Sweden
- Helena NydahlGireesh Nair, Umeå University, researchers in energy efficiency in buildings. Topic: Extended building life cycle cost assessment with inclusion of monetary evaluation of climate risk and opportunities
- Marcus Sandberg, Luleå University of Technology, a researcher in digitalised construction. Topic: Digital workflows for climate calculation and optimisation of buildings
- Kai Tolonen, Pekka Harju and Vesa Pitsinki, Oulu University of Applied Sciences, senior lecturers in construction engineering and management. Topic: Roadmap to sustainability of built environment by collaboration and digitalization
