Whole life cost and carbon tool launched

6th June 2024

A new tool has been launched for the measurement and reporting of whole life costs and whole life carbon emissions.

UK-based construction data firm Building Cost Information Service (BCIS) has launched the Life Cycle Evaluator using its in-house cost data and carbon data from the Built Environment Carbon Database (BECD).

James Fiske, BCIS chief executive and chair of the BECD steering group, said: “Combining cost and carbon data in one place is a logical development given the increasing requirement for both detailed whole life cost and whole life carbon plans to be produced, evaluated and audited in projects.

“We expect to see more audits being carried out on projects’ green credentials, making the accuracy of assessments – in some cases carried out to secure financing – even more critical.”
