Accelerate early design analysis
and take control of key design decisions from the start.

Whole Building Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) software

 

Our Footprint Calculators are designed to reduce the cost and complexity of life cycle impact assessment for buildings and organisations. By streamlining all key environmental requirements, with a focus on low carbon and energy compliance, it delivers one, easy to read report.

By being able to quickly, and simply, assess the impact of design decisions, your practice can take control and accelerate the whole building life cycle assessment process.

Key Benefits

■ Comprehensive property LCA within 3 hours
■ ASMM6 and NPWC format for budget alignment
■ ISO compliant with leading LCI data sources
■ Workflow aligned with your design process

Designed... to design

 

The TFC founders are design professionals who understand the need for visual communication. The Footprint Calculator's visual representation of environmental impacts, in a straightforward format aligned with the design process, is an approach unmatched by any other LCA software.

Our interface is specifically designed to be easy for non-LCA experts.

The Footprint Calculator's User Workspace enables fast iteration and scenario evaluation. Generated reports provide you with comprehensive impact analysis, with comparisons to industry benchmarks by use type, help guide your decision making and design improvement focus.

Key Features

1: Calculators cover all project stages and sizes
2: Online for 24/7 global access
3: Thousands of pre-defined materials and assemblies
4: Visual palettes and material selection guidance
5: Comparison to industry benchmarks

Comprehensive solutions

 

The Footprint Calculators offer comprehensive solutions for all levels,  whether you are master planning or assessing existing assets or organisation.

The Footprint Calculators also offer full vertical integration, from interior fitout > building > precinct through to organisational level assessment, and used across the life-cycle.

What's more, The Footprint Calculators give you instant access to cloud based software and reports - NO downloads required.

“By taking a holistic, early approach to measurement, informed decisions were made that have paid off. The design is more capital efficient delivers a lower operating and embodied carbon footprint while hitting social targets by delivering a superior internal environment quality for people.”

Macquarie University


“The key benefits over other approaches is that it gives a meaningful goal, it rewards the key goal of keeping buildings and consumables for longer rather than replacing and upgrading and allows you to manage if yourself (very simply). I am passionate about it as the perfect approach for Universities.”
