|Capital Load (CLc, CLf)
combined total value of all
capital projects for a single asset
(or all the assets combined) in a building
that are forecast over
one of the following time periods:
Similarly the operating load (OL) is the combine value of all operating tasks carried out over the same period and energy load (EL) is the exfiltration and infiltration of energy over the same period.
The capital load has the following general applications:
Included below are two examples of the capital load:
The CL should therefore include both renewal projects and major maintenance projects.
A body of literature surrounds the methods of quantification of keep-up costs, which can be organized into two general methodological categories.
Listed below are some of the factors that may impact the capital load:
Analysis and Reporting on Capital Load
The capital load can be presented and reported on in a variety of ways:
Evaluation of the Capital Load
Listed below are some of the merits and limitations of the capital load as an asset management concept:
Listed below are some of the asset management principles associated with the capital load:
Fig. The capital load (CL) for a building distributed by system and represented in both current value (CV) and future value (FV).
Fig. Roof replacement is a capital project that typically occurs every 20-25 years and will form part of the capital load of the enclosure system.
Fig. The addition of all the capital costs along a strategic planning horizon (purple bars) will equate to the capital load for that period.
Fig. Pie chart indicating the distribution of capital costs across the different systems in a building.
Fig. Capital load for a single building distributed by system and reflected in both current value (CV) and escalated to future value (FV).
Fig. The capital load distributed across the eight primary physical systems for different types of buildings.
