Towards effective consideration of non-financial factors in the design and management of construction assets.
The decisive role of non-financial factors in the design and management of construction assets is highlighted and existing techniques used to include these factors in the decision-making process are critically reviewed. An effective algorithm has been developed to include non-monetary benefits of competing design alternatives in whole-life costing studies. The unique feature of the algorithm, amongst others, is that it proceeds through logical steps that can be followed and assessed by decision-makers. Details of the computer implementation of the algorithm are presented. The solution of a selected example problem is also included to illustrate the theory of the algorithm.
