Session Details
Concrete Specifications and Whole Building LCA in LEED V4 — A Case Study
Dirk Kestner  //  Session T5C  //  May 13, 2015 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Capitol Tower, a 35-story, 750,000-GSF Class A office building in downtown Houston is one of three Platinum Pre-Certified projects in the LEED V4 Beta program. As one of the first projects in the nation to pursue LEED V4, it is also one of the first (if not the first) project to pursue the new LEED V4 Whole Building Lifecycle Assessment credit. Dirk will explain Capitol Tower’s pursuit of the LCA credit, focusing on the role of  concrete specification and its significant impact on achieving this credit. He will also discuss the options currently available in commercial LCA software, the hurdles the design team faced, and how the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association’s (NRMCA) Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and Industry Benchmarks were used by the project team.
