A life cycle cost analysis (LCCA) is an analysis methodology that enables engineers, designers, and decision makers to better understand the economic impacts of infrastructure decisions over time along with the opportunities that exist to reduce impacts. CSHub buildings LCCA research considers life cycle, context, and future, and also incorporates costs due to anticipated hazards.
