IMPACT is a unique toolset from IES that allows construction professionals to optimise the sustainability of their building design by analysing the embodied impact and life cycle cost of material/product choices, and operational energy efficiency.

In this online course you will be shown how to perform LCA and LCC analysis on your project while also achieving over 10% of your overall BREEAM score using IMPACT. You will learn more about this new IMPACT approach to integrated LCC, LCA and energy performance analysis, and its relationship to BREEAM credits MAT-01 and MAN-05.

This course also gives you access to a set of IMPACT prerequisite videos for those who have no experience using the Virtual Environment.
