The whole-life costs of a building include not only the capital costs of building it, but the future operation and maintenance costs throughout the building life cycle.
Through adopting a whole-life approach to design, asset value can be enhanced. A higher initial capital investment may offer greater value for money in the longer term, with reduced costs of operation and maintenance.
Trident provides advice to developers and end users upon the costs of construction, maintenance, operation and occupancy cost to provide a holistic whole-life cost of the asset. Our services help clients make decisions on the whole-life of building and consider more than the initial capital cost. Whole-life value also considers options for disposal or redevelopment at the end of the life cycle period.
Trident’s life cycle costing tools enable us to compare options using energy, component life cycle and revenue implications. We provide detailed reports using guidance provided in ISO 15685–5 and the UK Standardised Method of Life Cycle Costing for Construction Procurement.
