Life Cycle Costing for Facilities
Guide To Achieving Higher Quality Design and Construction Projects While Lowering Costs

By Alphonse Dell'lsola and Dr. Steven Kirk

Guidance for achieving higher quality design and construction projects at lower costs—from the leading authorities on life cycle costing.

Facility designers and owners are frustrated with cost-cutting efforts that yield the cheapest product, but sacrifice quality. Life Cycle Costing, properly done, enables them to achieve both—high quality, incorporating innovative design, and costs that meet their budgets.

The authors, widely recognized leaders in these techniques, show how LCC can work for a broad variety of projects – from several types of buildings, to roads and bridges, to HVAC and electrical upgrades, to materials and equipment procurement.

The authors of this book, the recognized leaders in Life Cycle Costing, show how this process can be applied to every aspect of construction—from all types of buildings (commercial, educational, industrial, health care and more)—to roads and bridges—to HVAC equipment and electrical systems upgrades; and materials and equipment procurement. A Life Cycle Costs section, a major part of the book, provides maintenance and replacement costs for all elements of the facility—from the foundation and structure to the walls and floors, plumbing, HVAC and electrical systems, and landscaping. The electronic Life Cycle Costing spreadsheet program included with the book simplifies the process of applying LCC to users’ own projects.

There are also sixteen Case Studies that show how to apply LCC to particular facility types and building components, including:

  • Health care and nursing facilities
  • College campus and high schools
  • Office buildings, courthouses, and banks
  • Chemical plants and museum renovations
  • Regional highway systems
  • Exterior walls, elevators, lighting, HVAC, and more

The book’s extensive cost section provides maintenance and replacement costs for facility elements… from foundation and structure to walls and floors, plumbing, HVAC and electrical, and landscaping.

These proven methods are equally effective in new construction, remodeling, renovations, and restorations.
