  1. 1. Life-Cycle Costing : Applications and Implementations in Bridge Investment and Management

    Author : Mohammed Safi; Raid Karoumi; Håkan Sundquist; Jan-Eric Nilsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Bridge; Cost; Life Cycle Cost Analysis; Procurement; Investment; Management;

    Abstract : A well-maintained bridge infrastructure is a fundamental necessity for a modern society that provides great value, but ensuring that it meets all the requirements sustainably and cost-effectively is challenging. Bridge investment and management decisions generally involve selection from multiple alternatives. READ MORE

  2. 2. Life Cycle Thinking in Environmentally Preferable Procurement

    Author : Elisabeth Hochschorner; Göran Finnveden; Anna Björklund; Ann-Marie Tillman; KTH; []
    Keywords : Life Cycle Thinking; Life Cycle Assessment; Environmental Procurement; Life Cycle Costing; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Products generate environmental impacts during their life cycle by consuming raw materials and energy, releasing emissions and producing waste. A procurement organisation can be a considerable driving force for more environmentally friendly products e.g. by requiring that products meet certain environmental criteria. READ MORE

    Abstract : Energy use in the European Union is increasing. At the same time, it is estimated that by the year 2050 most of the EU population will be living in currently existing buildings. Some of these buildings are or will be in need of renovation, and they have identified a target to reduce overall energy use. READ MORE
