Naviate Zero

Naviate Zero make smart sustainable material selections easier directly in your Revit model.


Make smart material selections to minimise the carbon footprint in your designs. You have direct access to updated Environmental Product Declerations (EPDs) and values for your selected country and regions. You can sort on data resource, specific categories, and units. You can also choose to search in the list of EPDs and only work with the most sustainable options only. You can then mark your favourites for easy access whenever you use Naviate Zero.

Optimise the building carbon in your designs

CO2 values repository

In Naviate Zero you are directly connected to a large CO2 values repository for generic building elements and Environmental Product Declerations (EPD). This means you can create an early building lifecycle assessment (LCA) on your design directly in your Revit model. You can add, change and remove data on your Revit families and materials, and see the changes as you work.

See the LCA on your design as you work


Naviate Zero fully supports the vision and collaboration in BIM. The features used in Zero communicate seamlessly with other Naviate modules and Revit.

Seamlessly connect with Naviate and Revit

Supports the production phase

Naviate Zero supports the early stages of building lifecycle assessment (LCA), covering raw material, transport and manufacturing in the production phase (A1-A3) of the building process. Zero can calculate embodied carbon in the materials selected in a project and what the CO2 emission will be on the building with the selected materials. Zero does not cover the rest of the construction lifecycle with transport and installation in the construction phase (A4-A5), we do however support an export to One Click LCA for further LCA analysis.

Key functionalities in Zero

Project settings

Connect your project to a country and select the units on all categories to get the correct calculations on CO2/Global Warming Potential (GWP).

All or by selection

Choose between working with all elements in your model, or selected elements with Live Selection or Filter Elements from Naviate Accelerate.

Search and filters

You can search for families or materials in your model. There's also a filtering option on category or type.


Work with your model from categories or by materials. Multiple layers is recognised in a family, such as glass, frame etc for a window.

Manage CO2 values directly in Revit

You can add and remove multiple Environmental Product Declerations (EPD) on families or materials in Revit. Changes in your project will be updated and stored in extensible storage.


You can compare EPDs and CO2 values to make the right selection for your projects and connect them to different families and materials


You can visualise your CO2 data with pie charts and tables by category or material.



A: Building Lifecycle Assessment calculates the lifetime environmental impact of a building.

A: Environmental Product Declerations is a transparent, verifiedand objective report on a what a product is made of and how it impacts the environment during its entire lifecycle.

A: Sustainable material selection is the balance between meeting design requirements and maximising product performance within the set cost frames while minimising the environmental impact of materials selected.

A: Global Warming Potential measure how much energy the emission of one ton of a gas will absorb over a given period of time relative to the emissions on one ton of CO2.
