Whole Building Rating

SSC encourages full lifecycle analysis.

A whole building rating, for example, considers the entire building from the products and processes involved in its construction, to its eventual deconstruction, recycling and disposal. Such a rating scheme is based on quantitative rather than purely qualitative data.
