Life-Cycle Cost Analysis. [Whole Building Design Guide]

Web Abstract: 
Life-cycle cost analysis is an economic method for assessing the total cost of facility ownership. It involves translating all expenses associated with building ownership over a prescribed life cycle period into current dollars. These include costs arising from owning, operating, maintaining, and ultimately disposing of a facility. This section from the Whole Building Design Guide provides a description, application opportunities, relevant codes and standards, and additional resources.
