This paper details the development a quantitative life cycle costing software for the assessment of financial feasibility of office building projects at the preliminary design stage. The model handles most technical data and financial factors which are required to determine the life cycle costs and economic feasibility of proposed buildings, with basic, minimum input. Three assessment factors are calculated : present worth, annual worth and savings-investment ratio.
