The complexity of sustainability complicates the design work and requires the implementation of Integrated Life Cycle Design. Due to the need of balance between environmental, social and economic aspects and the multitude of analysis indicators, the assessment of existing buildings is a multi-criteria problem too. The aim of the study is to compare three construction technologies – two traditional solutions and an innovative technology – in the aspect of sustainable development. The assessment was limited to the building envelope materials and included in entirety of 13 environmental, social and economic indicators, characteristic for the first stage of building life cycle. The absence of explicit dominance of one technology over another in terms of these factors was a starting point for the multi-criteria analysis. Based on the comparison of given technologies by WSM and TOPSIS methods, the multi-criteria analysis was carried out and the most advantageous technology was indicated. The results allow for an indirect selection of building materials to fulfil the sustainability requirements for the building.
