Abstract: Current environmental assessment methods evaluate buildings over their life-cycle at a later design stage to provide an indication of their environmental performance. At that stage the environmental information cannot be effectively used in the general design process, whereas the sole aspect of the environmental performance cannot provide comparable building solutions. The Sustainable Structural Design (SSD) method, here introduced, considers environmental and structural parameters with a life-cycle approach. The integration of environmental data in the structural performance is the focus of this method, structural performances are considered as a probabilistic variable, through the introduction of a simplified Performance-Based Assessment method. The SSD method is implemented in a case study of a commercial building both for cast-in-situ and precast structure solutions.
