Waitakere NOW Home
This project used Life Cycle Assessment to assess the environmental performance of the Waitakere NOW Home over its 100-year lifespan. The system boundaries included construction, maintenance, operation and end of life. The operation stage dominated the life cycle energy consumption, global warming potential and acidification potential, contributing around 65-76% to the life cycle impact of these impact categories. A summary of the report is available on Beacon’s website.
