Abstract

The EPiC Database contains environmental flow coefficients for over 250 common construction materials and products. Developed using complete, transparent and consistent methods, the EPiC coefficients can be used to assess the embodied energy, water and greenhouse gas emissions of construction projects, assisting with design, construction and whole of life decision-making. The EPiC database is the result of a four-year multi-institutional research project, led by internationally recognised experts in modelling embodied environmental flows. Their combined 30+ years of experience in the field is testimony to their commitment to improving the environmental performance of construction.
