This session will provide an overview of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), related requirements for LEEDv4, and the Revit application Tally as a tool for analyzing and reporting LCA throughout design and construction. LCA is a relatively new process in building design and construction aimed at reducing a building’s impact on the environment, and offers another level of information for design decision making. The New Atlanta Stadium will be presented as a case study, and additional case study examples may be used to demonstrate the full capability of the Tally™ tool. Speakers from BuroHappold, the structural engineer and sustainability collaborator for the Stadium project, and KT Innovations, an affiliate of KieranTimberlake and a member of the Tally development team, will discuss the technical challenges faced in LCA implementation, including team coordination, establishing appropriate baselines, and tracking LCA performance across project stages.

Roderick Bates is an Associate at KieranTimberlake, an award-winning architecture firm recognized for its environmental ethos, research expertise, and pioneering design and planning. He assists architectural design teams in the development of holistic, performance-driven design architecture. His expertise includes evaluating energy use and thermal comfort, and gathering and interpreting site and building data to inform critical design decisions. In his role at KieranTimberlake he oversees the commercialization of technologies designed to elevate building performance broadly across environmental, economic, and aesthetic criteria. His early initiative to quantify the embodied energy of buildings was recognized with the US EPA Lifecycle Building Challenge award and a poster presentation in the ASHRAE Netzeb Energy Building conference in 2008. He is currently managing the development and commercialization for Tally ®, a BIM-integrated environmental impact software. Bates received a Master of Environmental Management from Yale University, School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
Julie Janiski works with building owners, developers, designers and contractors to define and analyze high-performance goals and strategies throughout the life of a project. Janiski leads a sustainability strategy and advanced analysis team at BuroHappold Engineering in the New York office, and oversees the implementation of computational and strategic analytical tools to develop informational feedback loops in early planning and pre-design through each design phase to post-occupancy. In addition to her role as a key member of the sustainability team for the New Atlanta Stadium project, she is currently the BH project manager for the new residential tower at Cornell Tech on Roosevelt Island and the School of Architecture renovation/addition at Tulane University. Janiski received a Master of Architecture from the University of Michigan and a Master of Design Science in Sustainable Design from the University of Sydney.
