Mott MacDonald has launched an iPhone app version of its LifeCYCLE costing and CO2 emissions calculator. It has been developed in direct response to requests to help benchmark and reduce life cycle cost and carbon values for construction projects.
A powerful yet simple to use app, LifeCYCLE provides accurate up-to-date information relating to cost and carbon per sq m for a host of building types. With the ability to be used while out of the office, it can enable faster high-level decisions, driving better commercial deals. The tool can also benchmark information across various international locations and can calculate costs over a chosen period of time. The user simply selects the options from the drop down menus available and then chooses to see the results as a table, bar chart or pie chart.
Alasdair Thompson, development director at Mott MacDonald, said: “The UK Government has highlighted the close correlation between carbon cost savings in a new report – the Infrastructure Carbon Review. LifeCYCLE gives visibility to both cost and carbon, helping clients and designers to drive efficiency in an informed and rigorous way.”
LifeCYCLE by Mott MacDonald is now available free from Apple App Store.
