Life Cycle Costing

  • Ivor H. Seeley
Part of the Macmillan Building and Surveying Series book series (BASS)


With many projects cost planning cannot be really effective unless the total costs are considered, embracing both initial and future costs. This chapter examines the concept of life cycle costing, the various approaches, problems in application and its use in practical situations. A number of related issues such as discounting future payments, lives of buildings and components, the relationship of design and maintenance and energy conservation are also considered.
