The Building Research Establishment will next week launch a new software package for estimating the environmental impact of commercial and office buildings over their lifetime. BRE claims that its software, Envest, is the first package in the uk to consider the impact of materials usedduring construction and maintenance as well as the energy the building uses over its life. The Richard Rogers Partnership, Buro Happold and Bennetts Associates have all thrown their weight behind the initiative.
