Life Cycle Analysis

Service Overview

Today, political and business decisions are often based on short-term considerations and internal costs and benefits. However, any action or development has long-term implications and far-reaching, associated external benefits and costs. To develop a truly successful project or business, we must think for the long-term. Only then can we deliver environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and financial performance.

Our integrated, multi-disciplinary teams of professionals can evaluate the long-term benefits and costs associated with a project, development, business or operation using full life cycle analyses (LCAs). We can also quantify and monetize the external implications to provide a complete cost-benefit analysis. These analyses can then lead to modified plans and designs to increase project benefits and reduce costs - both internal and external - to the client, society and the environment.
