In a modern building construction proejct, the right planning ensures that the building becomes as smart and sustainable as possible. As buildings are often the second largest cost for business, it is important to take future requirements of operation and maintenance into account.
Due to tightening regulation and public opinion, property owners and occupants are increasingly focusing on the environmental impact of their buildings.
Investors are looking for development projects that are sustainable before they finance them.
Applying a lifecycle approach to the construction project is a smart investment in both the short and long term.
In large building projects, there are often dozens of suppliers working simultaneously on ever-changing, but interdependent project plans. This easily leads to misalignment, dissatisfaction, delays in execution and possibly even cost explosions. Make sure this does not happen to your project by implementing Building Information Modeling (BIM).
BIM provides a digital model of your building with all the physical and functional characteristics. It will enable you to have a real-time visual interpretation of the building, run simulations, enhance communication and recognise potential clashes in advance.
All the parties involved can tap into this shared knowledge resource for information about your building. This forms a reliable basis for decisions during the project and for the future operations of the building as well.
You can save up to 30% of your annual energy and maintenance costs if you consider them in the initial planning instead of sourcing them after the building is finished. We’re so sure about this, we’ll even guarantee it.
The benefits of lifecycle agreements:
When planning your building, your first call should go to a partner like Caverion that can provide expert advice and independent design paired with:
Ask for advice on the investment and for a calculation of the entire life-cycle costs for a transparent and complete total life cycle cost (TLCO).
