Abstract : Appropriate design and construction can reduce the environmental impact of buildings over their entire lifecycle. Such a prevention strategy can be supported by an evaluation tool. Our approach consists in applying life cycle analysis, and the use of computers is preferred to compare alternative designs and to test possible improvements of a project. We adopted an object oriented approach in order to link models with professional practice. A data structuration has been defined, in which a building is decomposed into objects. The corresponding classes include both data and methods. The result of such evaluation will be an environmental profile, constituted of various indicators on natural resources used, emissions and waste produced. The past experience on low energy architecture has been used and the environmental assessment tool will be proposed to the users club of an existing tool for building energy analysis.
