Life Cycle Costing for Facilities

Facility designers and owners are frustrated with cost-cutting efforts that yield the cheapest product, but sacrifice quality. Life cycle costing, properly done, enables them to achieve both – high quality and costs that meet their budgets.  

The authors, widely recognized leaders in these techniques, show how LCC can work for a broad variety of projects – from several types of buildings, to roads and bridges, to HVAC and electrical upgrades, to materials and equipment procurement.  
Life Cycle Costing can be applied to every aspect of construction – from all types of buildings (commercial, educational, industrial, health care and more), to roads and bridges, to HVAC equipment and electrical systems upgrades and materials and equipment procurement. A life cycle costs section, a major part of the book, provides maintenance and replacement costs for all elements of the facility – from the foundation and structure to the walls and floors, plumbing, HVAC and electrical systems, and landscaping.
