Description / Abstract:

This European Standard provides the general principles and requirements, expressed through a suite of standards, for the assessment of buildings in terms of economic performance taking into account technical characteristics and functionality of a building. The economic assessment will quantify the contribution in economic terms of the assessed construction works to sustainable construction and sustainable development.

The framework applies to all types of buildings and it is relevant for the assessment of the economic performance of new buildings over their life cycle and of existing buildings over their remaining service life and end of life stage.

The economic performance assessment of a building addresses the life cycle costs and other economic aspects, all expressed through quantitative indicators. It excludes the economic risk assessment of a building and return on investment calculations

It includes economic aspects of a building relating to the built environment within the area of the building site, it does not include economic aspects beyond the area of the building site, e.g. such as economic impacts of construction of local infrastructure or economic impacts resulting from transportation of the users of the building or economic impacts of a construction project on local community.

NOTE 1 Assessment of economic performance is one aspect of sustainability assessment of buildings under the general framework of prEN 15643-1.

The standards developed under this framework do not set the rules for how the different assessment methodologies may provide valuation methods nor do they prescribe levels, classes or benchmarks for measuring performance.

NOTE 2 Valuation methods, levels, classes or benchmarks may be prescribed in the requirements for economic performance in the client's brief, building regulations, national standards, national codes of practice etc.

The rules for assessment of economic aspects of organizations are not included within this framework. However, the consequences of decisions or actions that influence the economic performance of the object of assessment are taken into account.
