Originally released in 2007, Mithun is in the middle of an update to the Build Carbon Neutral free online calculator.
This ZNCD session will provide a “behind the scenes” look at the development of BCN version 2.0, and how we plan to incorporate the lessons learned at Mithun and across the broader industry in the 15 years since the calculator’s debut.
Leveraging industry research, Mithun’s internal project database and iterative parametric modeling, the updated BCN calculator will better address complex construction types, specific structural quantities, site design and above-ground biomass for simplified carbon assessments of comparative elements of buildings and sites, and the specific elements of design that can be influenced for a lower carbon footprint.
