Life Cycle Costing for HS1 International Rail Stations

Faithful+Gould has undertaken a commission to refresh the existing life cycle cost (LCC) estimates for St. Pancras, Stratford and Ebbsfleet stations and prepare a new LCC estimate for Ashford station. 

The LCCs are required to establish a long term charge (LTC) for the stations for discussions between HS1, the train operating companies and the Department for Transport.

The refreshed LCC for each of the stations covers the major replacement of Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) and building fabric assets within each of the stations over a period of 50 years.

The LCC estimates follow the latest asset management standards and LCC techniques outlined in the standard on Service Life Planning ISO 15686 Part 5 - Life cycle costing and UK supplement 'Standardized Method of Life Cycle Costing for Construction Procurement’ which Faithful+Gould has co-authored.
