Guan, Li-Shan (2007) Incorporating LCA Method into Asset and Facility Life Cycle Management. In Zhou, P., Newton, S., & Wang, J. (Eds.) CRIOCM 2007: 12th International Research Symposium on Advancement of Construction Management and Real Estate, 8 –13 August 2007, Sydney.
With the increasing awareness of sustainable development, incorporation of potential environmental impact into the consideration of asset and facility life cycle management is attracting increasing attention. On the one hand, businesses now widely recognize the needs to actively engage in the sustainability arena. On the other hand, companies are now also increasingly accountable for their impacts on the society, environment and economy. This paper presents an initial framework that takes account of sustainability consequences of the products into asset and facility life cycle management. It is shown that major physical assets and facilities in different areas/sectors may have quite different behaviour, thus requiring the uses of different high-level criteria/factors. The evaluation process to incorporate the environmental LCA concept into asset life cycle management is also developed and discussed.
