How Vulcan Timber Positively Impacts a Building Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
Queenstown-based Passive House designer Arthur Lee from Respond Architects is passionate about crafting beautiful homes that are also finely tuned machines for energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. We sat down to talk with him about the recent Building Carbon Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) he carried out on a small Queenstown cabin design, where he tested Vulcan Cladding as a potential facade material.
With a considered, energy efficient building design, the initial LCA carbon emission was less than half that of an average New Zealand building. Arthur Lee asked, how could it be better?
