Capitol Tower, a 35 story, 750,00 GSF Class A office building in downtown Houston is one of three Platinum Pre-Certified projects in the LEED V4 Beta program. As one of the first projects in the nation to pursue LEED V4, it is one of, if not the, first project to pursue the new LEED V4 Whole Building Lifecycle Assessment credit in LEED. This paper and presentation will be a case study of this projectís pursuit of the LCA credit, with a specific focus on the role of the concrete specification, and the significant contribution it made to the credit. The presentation will discuss the options currently available in commercial LCA software, the hurdles the design team faced, and how NRMCA EPDís and Industry Benchmarks were used by the project team.
