Since the release of our free H\B:ERT tool V1, we have been developing an in-house version that we use for our embodied and whole life carbon consultancy. (It won both the AJ100 Best Use of Technology and the RIBA Research Award in 2020.)
H\B:ERT V2 has evolved from the free version through the creation of a web-based data collection and visualisation platform, that allows the data from Revit to be more clearly represented. The tool enables the filtering of results, comparisons between various design options for both embodied and whole life carbon, as well as a breakdown of building elements and life cycle stages aligned with the RICS Methodology 2017 and GLA WLC reporting. We have also added a component library which allows the quick comparison of different build-ups to drive good decision making from the earliest stages of creating an outline material palette.
