Whole Life Cycle Asset Management

Value-Driven Solutions & Services

Whole Life Cycle Asset Management

A commercial business case must meet rigorous environmental, sustainability and legislative requirements at any RIBA stage. To meet these requirements, RLB has developed a Total Cost Model (TCM) that integrates data from our wider advisory services with our cost planning system. Optimisation of design, construction and operation can be advised and reported using TCM, which considers the capital, operational, occupancy, energy, carbon, maintenance and replacement costs of your building over a predetermined period. Our insights will help you improve your asset management.

Boost asset financial performance

Increasing energy costs, rising inflation and carbon reduction targets are prompting property owners and operators to examine future liabilities and develop business strategies to reduce operational costs and rationalise estates. Our experts can provide you with accurate life cycle planning to determine where and when future asset repairs and replacements will be required.

Make data-driven design decisions

Life cycle planning forecasts property-related costs following construction and after building condition assessments. RLB provides capital cost reporting that feeds back into the design process to support future data-driven design decisions. By using elemental life cycle reporting, we can improve your maintenance and replacement programmes by minimising life cycle costs and maximising critical construction value.

Improve portfolio cost efficiency

With life cycle planning you can maximise purchasing synergies across portfolios and establish supply chains for asset maintenance and replacement to achieve long-term financial stability. By aligning maintenance management and inspection regimes with business strategies, informed decision-making is possible before capital replacement projects are scoped and procured. The potential efficiencies can generate funds for major improvements and carbon reduction initiatives.

Enhance construction value

Life cycle planning can drive efficiency from future estate liabilities. It can be used at each stage of the property life cycle to enhance construction value through a structured assessment of maintenance, repair and replacement requirements through to assessment of end of building life costs. Our experts will show you how.
