Life Cycle Costing (LCC) at Elemental and Component level is a requirement for both New Build, and Refurbishment and Fit-out BREEAM schemes. Often material and specification choices made at the early design stage can improve the quality of the building if we consider not only the initial capital costs but also the durability, performance and subsequent operation and maintenance requirements.
The Life Cycle Cost and Service Life Planning credit under BREEAM Man02 aims to focus design decision-making on life cycle cost and performance, and to provide an understanding of the future operational and maintenance requirements and costs. It also gives the design team the opportunity to consider how design and specification alternatives can minimise the costs to the building tenants and occupiers as well as maximise the value of the asset.
This webinar provides an overview of the BREEAM requirements for LCC, explaining the technical criteria and their intent. You will hear from two industry experts: Anthony Waterman, Managing Director of ADW Developments, a company that specialises in BREEAM consultancy on BREEAM New Build and Refurbishment schemes, and Kathryn Bourke, Director of Whole Life Ltd, a consultancy firm specialising in Whole Life Cost and Value.
This webinar aims to improve your understanding of LCC and provide a more in depth explanation of the requirements to achieve the BREEAM Man02 credit.
The industry experts will also share with you some practical examples of LCC studies, which will clarify the difference between an elemental level LCC study and a component level LCC options appraisal.
