Until a few years ago, economy in public funded buildings during
construction or retrofitting was focused on investment cost and
not very much on the cost for maintenance and energy use. Lately
there has been a change in the rules and laws from the Ministry of
Housing, resulting in the possibility of using total-economy.
Total-economy incorporates all present and future investments
(e.g. operational and maintenance costs) into one number making it
possible to invest more money when constructing a building and
save the money later on due to lower cost for maintenance and
energy consumption.This paper will give a summary of the two
methods which are currently used in Denmark. The pros and cons of
each of the methods will be discussed and key parameters for the
calculations will be estimated.
