Costplan has extensive experience providing life cycle consultancy services to be compliant with requirements for BREEAM 2011 and BREEAM 2014 credits. We have an excellent understanding of the requirements and support our clients to meet the following objectives;
To achieve the financial, sustainability and operational benefits to be derived from following the principles of the BREEAM 2011/2014 life-cycle analysis through the design development;
To support the award of the BREEAM life-cycle credits; and
To inform operational budgeting over the serviceable lives of their facilities.
BREAAM life cycle analysis considers building related costs over the whole-life of a building, rather than focusing on purely the initial capital outlay. Lifecycle based options analyses are incorporated into the design process to consider design solutions, systems and component selection and this provides a range of potential benefits including:-
Reduced lifecycle costs;
Lower energy consumption or running costs;
Most sustainable / Lowest carbon output;
Low maintenance or better operational efficiency;
Balance between a number of elements;
Expenditure profiles for asset replacement & financial planning; and
Achievement of BREEAM life cycle analysis credits.
