Whole-life cost data

Letters

Sir,

IN THE article Costing for Life (Construction News, November 11) the Building Research Establishment's Ed Bartlett says the Building Performance Group's whole-life performance data does not include costs.

On the contrary: not only do we hold a unique database of durability information, but we also have access to rigorous cost data derived from extensive analysis of previous tender documents and manufacturers' price information.

While not published, this data is made available to PFI bidders and other clients as part of our package of whole-life performance services.
