Life Cycle Cost Analysis

Comprehensive Analysis for Informed Decisions


Building Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) Services

As technology evolves and building’s become more sophisticated in design, it is more important than ever to understand how design decisions affect your return on investment throughout the construction process. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is the latest tool for achieving optimal sustainable design that improves the overall economic performance of your building’s lifespan.

As building envelope researchers, we create a life cycle cost analysis summary for your building that helps you make informed decisions on the entire cost of the building structure, its materials and components. With this information, you can conduct performance tests and apply new methods for your conservation efforts before allocating dollars and resources to your facility. Zero/Six tailors our life cycle cost analysis services to each client and their unique project to predict all costs associated with acquiring, owning, operating, maintaining and disposing of a building.
