In response to the energy and digital transitions in the building sector, the concept of Smart Building is gaining in importance. The optimized management of these buildings should allow a reduction in costs and energy consumption during the operating phase, as well as an improvement in user comfort. However, in order to evaluate the real benefits of smart buildings, it is necessary to think on a broader scale than just the use phase or energy consumption. We therefore propose to evaluate, through life cycle assessment (LCA), the environmental impacts of an intelligent building during its entire life cycle, including the manufacturing, use and end of life of its connected sensors. In this project, which is part of the regional transversal issue of "what energy transition in Pays de la Loire" by 2050, a methodological framework will first be defined, then the LCA will be conducted on an intelligent building by considering several consumption scenarios.
