Whole Life Costing
Whole life costing involves the systematic consideration of all relevant costs and revenues associated with the acquisition and ownership of an asset to yield the most cost-effective balance of capital and revenue costs over the life of a building.
It can be undertaken at any stage in a project; as part of an investment appraisal to define what is built and when, or during design and construction to consider specification options and predict future maintenance and running costs – or to update these for existing buildings.
