About this app

Environmental sustainability and carbon footprint reduction have become key considerations in design and construction projects. With the Tally Climate Action Tool (tallyCAT), architects and designers using Autodesk Revit can now easily incorporate embodied carbon calculations and evaluate climate impact within their projects. This plugin offers a range of powerful features that enable users to make informed decisions and optimize their designs for a more sustainable future.

Seamless Integration with Revit

tallyCAT seamlessly integrates with your Autodesk Revit projects, providing a fully functioning Embodied Carbon in Construction Calculator (EC3) within the software. By uploading material types and quantities directly from Revit to EC3, you can effortlessly generate accurate estimations for the environmental impact of your design.

Estimation Tools and Environmental Product Declarations

One of the key features of tallyCAT is its powerful estimation tools, which allow you to obtain takeoffs in the units required by Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). With access to over 100,000 verified EPDs for real products, you can evaluate the climate impact and savings opportunities associated with different design choices.

tallyCAT appears in the Add-In toolbar.  Start from the EC3 Analysis menu to upload, annotate, and view in EC3.

Visualize Impact and Savings Potential

tallyCAT provides rich interactive graphs and heatmaps that enable you to visualize the areas of greatest impact and savings potential in your design. This visual feedback allows you to identify and prioritize strategies for reducing embodied carbon and optimizing sustainability.

Furthermore, tallyCAT allows you to annotate takeoff equations and Global Warming Potential (GWP) intensity back to the .rvt file, making it easier to reuse this information in other designs and future versions. This feature improves collaboration and streamlines the sustainability efforts across the entire design process.

Use powerful takeoff assistance tools to firm up quantities and do the conversions to allow use of EPD data.

Library of EC3-Annotated Components

With tallyCAT, you can save, share, and compare Revit families in a library of EC3-annotated components. This comprehensive library allows you to easily access and incorporate sustainable materials and products into your designs, promoting responsible material selection and reducing the carbon footprint of your projects.

Family Types can be stored, shared, and updated along with their EC3 annotations using the Library Browser.

Create Custom Reports and Comply with Sustainability Standards

tallyCAT enables you to create custom reports that can be tailored to meet specific requirements, such as Buy Clean policies, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, and International Construction Measurement Standards (ICMS). These reports serve as valuable documentation of your design's sustainability initiatives and can help you demonstrate compliance with industry standards.
