Life Cycle Cost Analysis

IPA Laboratories now offers a life cycle cost analysis (LCCA) service. Our clients can use an LCCA to determine and compare the total costs of various flooring systems over a building’s expected lifetime.

With the large number of new flooring types appearing in the market, it is more important than ever to understand how much a product costs over time.

Standardized per ASTM E917, you can use an LCCA to calculate the overall costs of differing flooring systems over a building’s expected lifetime. An LCCA also takes into account costs incurred at various points throughout the lifetime, including the following:

  • Materials costs

  • Installation costs
  • Maintenance costs
  • Demolition costs
  • Replacement costs

An LCCA provides robust insights into long-term costs by allowing you to compare different flooring options for various economic conditions. This enables investors, architects, purchasers, specifiers and more to select a flooring system with the highest possible value.
