In order to begin performing your calculation, you need to create a project. The available project types will be determined by the type of license you have purchased. If you have not purchased a license yet, you can also start a trial project or use our free Planetary tool: Getting Started With One Click LCA Planetary.
How To Create Your First Project
1. Select your project type
Click the 'Add' or 'Start a free trial' button at the top of the screen to choose the type of project you wish to create as shown below.
2. Link your license and fill in some basic information about your project
You will need to link your project either to your license or a trial. Further information about how to link these different options are available below:
Add information about your project location and type. You will need to add a project name, type and country as these are mandatory fields.
3. Add any optional information you wish to add to your project
Add further details about the Gross Floor Area, number of floors, frame type etc. of your project. You can also click to choose a certification pursued. However, this selection does not affect the LCA calculations, it only shows an icon of the pursued certification on the main page beside the project name. These fields do not need to be completed, and any details can be edited after the project has been created.
Once you click 'Next' you have created your project and can continue by creating designs.
