System Cost Distribution

A form of system cost model that represents the range of expenditure costs or other costs associated with the various systems in a building.

Buildings typically comprise eight physical systems, as follows:
Some of the factors impacting the capital consumption rate for each system are listed below:

Costs Distributed by Expense Classification
The distributions by expense classification may include the following:

       Group 1
       Group 2:
  • Maintenance Costs
  • Renewal Costs
  • Energy Costs

Costs Distributed by Building Type
The distributions of costs by system vary based on the type of building, such as:

Costs Distributed by Life Stage
Distributions also vary by the age of the building relative to its facility life cycle stage, as follows:
