Many architects and designers will work with clients and tell them they have designed a 50 year life cycle or a 100 year life cycle structure. Life cycle is just a combined review of the building structural and design elements by an experienced design professional and an assessment of the approximate useability term of the building. By looking at the type of building materials and building components the architect can help a client decide where to upgrade for a longer life cycle and where the upgraded expense may not pay for its self over the term of the building life cycle.
There are four main components that go into determining the life cycle of new modular construction:
1. The components that are used for the manufacturing
2. The costs and design criteria of the on site construction
3. The operational costs, maintenance, energy costs, repairs
4. The demolitions.......But in the case of modular construction our advantage is that the building can be relocated or reconstructed and is 100% recyclable.
