Automate LCC calculations and reduce lifetime costs of buildings
Import all your building materials and quantities from Excel, BIM, or energy models. If you have already calculated your LCA, the materials can be used for LCC calculations. Operation and maintenance costs are automatically generated based on your location. Replacements are calculated based on the service life of your construction materials. All other costs can be added manually. You can easily edit the figures if you have project specific information.
One Click LCA Life Cycle Costing tool is designed in line with EN 16627 and ISO 15686-5 standards. Results are reported based on the mandatory cost categories in the EN standard, including construction, maintenance, operation, and end-of-life related costs.
Create and compare design alternatives to find your most ecological and cost-efficient solution.
Use a Life Cycle Costing report template to present your results. The LCC results are in line with EN 16627 and ISO 15686-5 standards, including all mandatory cost categories: construction, operation, maintenance, and end-of-life costs.
Ready-to-use cost library tailored for country
Achieve BREEAM - Man 02 credits
You can submit the LCC results to earn BREEAM – Man 02 credits, including Elemental life cycle cost (LCC) (2 credits), and Component level life cycle cost (1 credit).

|Life cycle module||Analysis scope|
|A0-A5 Pre-construction and before use stage||Costs of purchase or rental costs (costs of the site); costs of building products; costs related to the transport between factory and site; project feasibility, planning, design, engineering and construction costs, incl. permissions, commissioning and handover; site clearance and landscaping (e.g. lawn, trees, and similar within the curtilage and other external works costs; subsidies and incentives (e.g. incomes related to renewable energy).|
|B1-B3 Operation and maintenance costs||Building-related facility management costs (e.g. regular cleaning, insurance, security, fire inspection, and similar costs); repair costs; ground maintenance; redecoration.|
|B4-B5 Replacement / refurbishment||Planned adaptation or refurbishment (incl. infrastructure, fitting out and commissioning, validation and handover); replacement of major systems and components (incl. associated design and project management).|
|B6 Operational energy use||Energy costs (incl. fuel and electricity for heating, cooling, power, domestic hot water, and lighting, as per the EU’s Energy Performance of Buildings Directive or EPBD).|
|B7 Operational water use||Water-related costs (e.g. rates, local charges, environmental taxes)|
|C1-C4 Deconstruction||Demolition costs; transport costs associated with deconstruction and disposal; fees & taxes (e.g. landfilling); waste processing costs|
