Life Cycle Costing for Sustainable Commercial Buildings workshops

13 June, 16 June, 26 June

Location – Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney

Owners and users of buildings need to make informed decisions about the purchase of equipment and materials. Although initial capital cost is often the key criteria, ongoing costs should also be considered to achieve the best outcome. Life cycle costing is a method of identifying and calculating all the costs (current and future) over the life of an asset.
The focus will be on:
– the LCC methodology
– the use of Net Present Value (NPV) to calculate future cash flows
– discount rates, and their effects on LCC analysis
– examples of how LCC can be used in decision making for buildings
