The aim of this paper was to investigate the type and quantity of material resources used and waste generated in an office fit-out project, and to quantif' the embodied energy and greenhouse gas emissions associated with the fit-out. The study was performed for an office lit-out project, typical for large property owners and attractive office premises, in an office building in central Stockholm, Sweden. The total embodied greenhouse gas emissions of the fit-out project amounted to 74.5 kg C02-equivalents/m2 and the total embodied energy to 1 .7 Gum2. Depending on frequency of fit-outs, the embodied greenhouse gas emissions and energy of fit-outs could exceed the embodied greenhouse gas emissions and energy of the initial construction or operational energy use seen in a life-cycle perspective.
