The State of North Carolina requires that all facilities constructed or renovated for the State, 20,000 GSF in area or larger, shall be designed on the basis of life-cycle cost. The goal of the legislation was to ensure that designers maximize the long-term benefits to the State, within the confines of a specific capital appropriation, since it is obvious that the cost imposed on the State over the life of a building far exceeds the initial construction investment. Further, under SB668, All construction projects with approved budgets of $2M must select building systems (from building envelope, to mechanical and electrical systems) based on life cycle cost analysis.
