Whole Life Cycle Assessment of the Sustainable Aspects of Structural Systems in Tall Buildings.

A collaborative research project involving 12 leading structural engineering firms to study the life cycle assessment of 16 different structural scenarios for a 248-metre tall tower, and for a 490-metre-tall tower.  One of the objectives is to create a definitive comparison of the life-cycle implications of steel, concrete and composite structural systems in tall buildings.  Additionally, a methodology for the assessment of life cycle energy and carbon use in tall building structural systems will be developed.

Could this methodology be used as a standard?
