Life-cycle costing and its use in the Swedish building sector
Luleå tekniska universitet.
2000 (English)In: Building Research & Information, ISSN 0961-3218, E-ISSN 1466-4321, Vol. 28, no 5-6, p. 387-393Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The results from a survey examing the extent that Swedish clients in the building sector use life-cycle cost (LCC) estimations are reported. The limits and benefits from the client and user perspectives are also explored. The interest in using LCC approaches for economic evaluation of investment decisions is large. However, constraints exists at a number of levels: uncertainties related to the long term forecasts used, difficulties in achieving relevant input data and lack of experience in using LCC models, incentives for consultants and contractors. Nonetheless, the LCC perspective is proving to be most useful during the design phase where the possibilities of cost reductions related to operation and maintenance are large. LCC can provide motivation for environmental progressive building despite the sometime higher initial cost. The implication for expanding the use of LCC are considered for government, clients/developers, professionals.
