520    Whole life costing has been a subject waiting to come of 
       age for many years. What was previously of mainly academic
       interest is now becoming a key business tool in the 
       procurement and construction of significant projects. With
       the advent of PPP and in particular of PFI, details of the
       project life need to be assessed and tied in to funding 
       and operation plans. Many of these projects run to 
       millions of pounds and are of high political or social 
       importance, so the implications of the life of materials 
       is crucial. A fundamental requirement of these procurement
       routes has been that the whole enterprise should be 
       included within the bid, so that a company takes on not 
       only the construction but also the running and maintenance
       of any building. Additionally as sustainability has 
       emerged and grown in importance, so has the need for a 
       whole life time costing approach, partly driven by 
       governmental insistence. At the heart of sustainability is
       an understanding of what the specification means for the 
       future of the building and how it will affect the 
       environment. Whole life costing considers part of this and
       provides an understanding of how materials may perform and
       what allowances are needed at the end of their life. This 
       book sets out the practical issues involved in the 
       selection of materials, their performance, and the issues 
       that need to be taken into account. The emphasis, unlike 
       in other publications, is not to formularise or to package
       the issues but to leave the reader with a clear 
       understanding and a sensible practical way of arriving at 
       conclusions in the future
