Revit - a good tool for climate declaration? : A study if Revit can simplify climate declaration (English)
Abstract [en]

According to SMHI the largest contributing factor to globalwarming is the increased greenhouse gas emissions in theatmosphere. In year 2018 Boverket submitted a proposal for climatedeclaration on new buildings. In the Boverkets climatedeclaration, a building's climate impact is calculated in the formof carbon dioxide equivalents on the material included in thefoundation, building envelope and the non-load-bearing interiorwalls. The unit in the climate declaration is kg Co2e / kg m2where m2 is BTA for the building.The purpose of the theoretical study was to describe what impactthe climate declaration will have in the building industry. Thepurpose of the empirical study was to investigate whether Revit isa good tool for calculating a building climate impact with a focuson greenhouse gas emissions.The result of the theoretical study indicates that the Boverket'sproposal on climate declaration will not lead to changes in theclimate impact of buildings. The study also shows that there willbe changes in the project planning of buildings and increased timespent by participants as the Boverkets estimation of the timerequired for the climate declaration is approximately 180 hours.The result of the empirical study shows that Revit is a good toolfor climate declaration. The study was based on evaluating Revitby the categories easy-to-use, time-consuming and presentationoptions. This resulted in a SWOT analysis showing Revit'scapacity
