Probabilistic approach for predicting life cycle costs and performance of buildings and civil infrastructure

Objective

The construction industry is a major consumer of natural resources. The inability to predict performance reliably can result in waste or costly premature deterioration. Life cycle analysis enables the life cycle cost and performance, LCCP, to be optimised. The aim is to develop a LCCP based design approach, using probabilistic analysis to account for uncertainties in modelling and performance, and to define risk. This will be achieved by development of current LCC approaches, collection of performance and cost data across Europe and the development of predictive performance and cost models. The design process will be mapped using case studies, to determine how LCCP can be incorporated most effectively. The approach will include the assessment of environmental and other socio-economic factors that are currently difficult to quantify. The output will be a software package for design and for monitoring and feedback of data.
