Cavendish Maxwell’s Project and Building Consultancy team are all UK qualified building surveyors, a profession whose extensive training is focused on built assets with particular expertise in whole life costing of buildings from the planning stage until end of life. Life cycle costing is an important and often overlooked assessment which involves an economic appraisal of the cost of the complete building and its assets and services throughout its life to enable future budget forecasting and better asset management. This can be either for a specific period of time or for the buildings estimated service life.
