An often-overlooked aspect to a building construction project is the selection of materials that will be used to complete the design. Materials and resources are the foundation of the buildings in which we live and work, as well as that with which we fill them, the infrastructure that carries people to and from these buildings, and the activities that take place within them. Green building requires rethinking the selection of these materials. Ideally, the materials and resources used for the project not only will do less harm, but will go further and regenerate the natural and social environments from which they originate. To evaluate the best options and weigh the trade-offs associated with a selection, teams must think beyond a project’s physical and temporal boundaries. Life cycle assessment can help a team make informed, defensible decisions.
