Rapiere Software Ltd created Rapiere, a web application, to aid building design for the circular economy including lifecycle carbon and cost. Rapiere is both an integrated BIM (Building Information Modelling) and carbon modelling tool for lifecycle carbon.

As a cloud based tool, accessed through a web application, and also through the use of the IFC file format (the standard BIM interoperable file format) it is OS and BIM-tool agnostic, allowing access to all parts of the construction value chain. By allowing multiple users to access the model (similar to Google Docs) it is also a collaboration tool, as well as a modelling/simulation tool.
