A few words from our tutor on what you can expect from this course

Course Description

Building quality over time will depend on the performance of building systems and components with the aim to contain cost-in-use within the limits predicted at design and planning.  A building’s ‘Life Cycle’ is influenced by variables such as changing user needs and natural ageing of materials and components, these may bring on the end of building ‘Functional Life’ and ‘Economic Life’ before the end of its ‘Physical Life’. There are several things that need to be considered and this will involve procedures and tools to measure and evaluate building quality and costs over its life cycle.
