Principle no.6 – Life Cycle
Life cycle, sustainable projects, designed with all phases in mind
Construction projects live extremely long. They determine and dominate our civilisation like few others. This imposes high responsibility on project owners, developers, designers and contractors. During the early phases almost all important future project parameters have to be decided.
Have sustainability criteria been reasonably applied during all project phases?
Have knowledge and experience from operation and FM played an important role in design?
Has all project information required for operation been considered in the early phases?
Have life cycle costs been controlled until the operation phase could prove its results, or not?
