The greatest opportunity to minimize the total cost of a building is during the design, planning, and construction phases, before decisions are literally cemented into place. Unfortunately, campuses often recognize the right (and wrong) decisions only after the fact.

Applying a total cost of ownership (TCO) mindset in capital project decisions can help reduce costs and optimize the life span of university assets. While TCO-focused decisions may lead to higher up-front costs, institutions recoup savings from lower maintenance and renewal costs.

This resource is designed to arm Facilities leaders with an anthology of proven early design and construction strategies to extend the life of institutional assets.
