Louise Hamot tops the speaker list at Avnir Conference in Lille, France

The LCA methodologies for sustainable building

The future building regulations planned for 2021 will not be just energy like RT2012 but will incorporate environmental criteria.

During this session, you will have an overview of the experiments already carried out to prepare for this transition: the first returns of the E+C- label, which prefigures this future regulation for the new, the presentation of a comparative study of the carbon impacts of energy systems. heating and an example of taking into account the LCA in a social housing rehabilitation market.

Investigation into embodied carbon of building services

Louise HAMOT
MSc. Eng, M.Arch,
Sustainability Consultant & Environmental Designer at Elementa Consulting, London

Louise holds a double diploma in Architecture and Engineer in Building/Urban Physics from France and works as a Sustainability Consultant and Environmental Designer. She gained strong experience in regenerative, biophilic, healthy materials by working at McLennan Design, an architecture practice based in Seattle (USA) created by the founder of the Living Building Challenge, and by studying at the Technische Universität of Darmstadt (Germany), home of Passivhouse label. She is involved in different International Living Future collaboratives in Europe and publications about whole life carbon in the building industry.

Contribution to building LCA thanks to the positive energy and low carbon french experimentation

Mathilde LOUËRAT
Paris Est University, Scientific and Technical Center for Building Construction (CSTB), Grenoble, France


After a PhD in heat and moisture transfer in bio-based materials, Mathilde joined the CSTB (French Scientific and Technical Centre for Building) in 2017 as a research engineer of the LCA team. She studies and assesses environmental impacts of buildings. She is involved in several projects to carry out or audit LCAs of new or renovated buildings. She co-develops methodology tools for renovated building LCA. She also works for the establishment of the E+C- label (positive Energy and low Carbon) for buildings. She combines assessment and support missions for members of the construction industry. For example, she co-develops data analysis tools to operate the environmental, energy and economic performance of buildings national database.
