Essentially whole life costing (WLC) is a means of comparing options, and their associated cost and income streams, over a period of time. Understanding the whole life costs of a building helps our clients make better informed design decisions from the outset. It allows them to select the most suitable building materials and components, or elements, thus achieving a more sustainable facility and better project outcome.

Whole life costing involves calculating the lowest cost options for the entire commercial life of a building, or individual component or element of a building, to include: construction capital costs, maintenance costs, running costs and also possibly demolition costs. It may also include a planned preventative maintenance programme and an allowance for expenditure on maintenance, as in this way interruption to business and associated costs can be minimised, thus saving money in the long-term.   

Testimonial

“I lose count of the amount of positive comments we receive from visitors on how great the new build looks and it really fits in well with the existing building.”

“Everyone at Hookway has been great to work with. They have worked closely with us to ensure that every last detail has been agreed and implemented. Thank you - we look forward to working with you again!”

“The new building has been open for over a year and teachers and pupils are still excited about it. It is so well designed in terms of light, space and ventilation that it is a joy to work in. The projecting roof at each end creates fantastic covered play space.”
