A New Approach to Life Cycle Roof Analysis

“Interest in life cycle cost analysis (LCCA) appears to be increasing among building owners and designers. Some of this attention may be attributed to a related and growing interest in ‘green’ building technologies that rely in part on the durability and sustainability of building materials to minimize environmental impacts. The increasing economic sophistication required to finance modern construction projects may also be a contributing factor. Finally, new federal requirements for public construction may be stimulating the growing interest in LCCA.”
