For many years now, architects, engineers, and designers have regularly used building performance modeling to test various Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs). These studies have routinely focused on the reduction of operational energy, which only accounts for one aspect of a building’s carbon emissions. Excluded from these energy analyses are the impacts of both embodied carbon and a project’s local grid emissions factor.  With the aim of reducing total carbon emissions, this presentation will demonstrate a design approach  for building façades which combines both embodied and operational carbon emissions, thereby basing design choices on total lifecycle carbon emissions.
