The publication serves as a workbook and reference
manual for a two-day life-cycle costing (LCc) workshop
developed and presented by the National Institute of
Standards and Technology (NIST) under the sponsorship of
the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) of the U.S.
Department of Energy (DOE). This project-oriented
workshop focuses on special topics in LCC analysis that
build on the material treated in NIST's basic LCC
workshop for energy and water conservation in federal
buildings. The workbook contains copies of the visuals
used in the workshop presentations, class exercises, and
solution reports generated by the supporting LCC
software, the Building Life-Cycle Cost (BLCC) program.
It contains a summary of the LCC method and FEMP
criteria, an overview of BLCC5, and presentation points
on the topics treated, such as fuel switching, optional
vs. mandatory replacement of building systems, capital
investment vs. Outsourcing, and alternative financing.
The workbook will be reissued annually to update to the
most recent DOE discount rates and energy price
escalation rates. The LCC method used is consistent with
10 CFR 436A, Circular A-94, Executive Order 13123, and
the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)
Standards on Building Economics.
