Whole Life Appraisal

Whole Life Appraisal Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whole life appraisal is a valuable tool that considers both cost and performance over the whole life of a facility and involves balancing the capital costs against the future operating and maintenance costs, whether it is a school, a road, an airport or a power plant. Privatisation around the world has led to an increase in the number of build-operate-transfer/public private partnerships/concession schemes where a concession is granted to design, finance, build and operate a facility over a time horizon of 20-30 years. Balancing whole life cost and performance against the capital costs is crucial to the concession team for the economic viability of the investment.

This book explains the principles, techniques and use of whole life appraisal in a straightforward, practical and comprehensible way. It addresses the data problems that arise and explains the jargon shrouding the whole life appraisal concept. Finally, it discusses the benefits and challenges of using a whole life approach for the appraisal of assets from design, through construction and into the operating phase.
