The main success criterion of a construction project is the value of the facility to the organisation over time.
Successful delivery requires an integrated process in which design, construction, operation and maintenance are considered as a whole – together with an understanding of how the project will affect business efficiency and service delivery over the lifetime.
Whole-life cost, or Life-cycle cost (LCC), refers to the total cost of ownership over the life of an asset.
Significant cost savings can be achieved if consideration of whole life costs is built into the design and build from the start.
There is significant value to be realised through the implementation of a whole life costing approach to major projects and programmes through lower costs and enhancement to the sustainability of the organisation. This increases medium and long term competitiveness and value for money, reducing reputational risk, and of course helping to deliver the ultimate ambition of economic, environmental and social sustainability.
We identify and analyse all lifecycle costs to show the impact of changes that could have a major effect over the whole life of a building.
We help clients achieve value for money, optimise costs, improve processes and make the right purchasing, acquisition and construction decisions at every stage of the process.
