Whole-life costing focuses on the total cost of ownership over the life of an asset from planning, design, construction and acquisition to operations, maintenance, renewal and rehabilitation and on to depreciation and replacement or disposal.
Responsible Management takes the Triple Bottom Line approach to life-cycle management considering the financial, environmental and social costs associated with property investment decisions.
We use operational cost modelling analysis to determine the relative benefits and costs of your potential occupancy options to inform acquisition and investment decisions for the long-term. One building may be significantly cheaper to buy but have substantially higher operating costs.
We work with you to demonstrate how materials usage, environmental impact and potential staff and customer satisfaction with the property should influence your decision making, through intelligent and objective modelling of the whole life impact and cost. We help you to avoid costly mistakes and make a fully informed decision which will add value to your organisation.
Our consultants have decades of experience working on major public and private projects, helping our clients to make informed investment and acquisition decisions with life-cycle management in mind. Click here to read case studies about our Whole Life-Cycle work.
