Lifecycle Cost Modelling

Lifecycle Cost Modelling for BREEAM Man 02


BREEAM aims to deliver whole life value by encouraging the use of life cycle costing to improve design, specification, through-life maintenance and operation, and through the dissemination of capital cost reporting promote economic sustainability.

This is evidenced in three parts:
Elemental life cycle cost
Component level life cycle cost
Capital cost reporting

Lifecycle Cost Modelling of Comparative Design Scenarios

When a project team is asked “should we partially refurbish and add a new wing, totally refurbish only, or demolish and rebuild a completely new building?” – a comparative lifecycle cost model may assist by informing the business case and design process.

Results are generally presented as real and discounted total costs, measured over relevant periods of time.
