Abstract

Various construction methods are being developed in accordance with the BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a technology for managing various information generated from the planning phase of a construction project to the design phase, construction phase and maintenance phase. In particular, LCC (Life Cycle Cost) information of many materials used in buildings can be efficiently managed and utilized by building a database that can be used in the BIM (Building Information Modeling) environment. In this study, LCC analysis method that can be used in the BIM environment was established and LCC information of building materials was built as database and suggested a method to utilize effectively. This study verified the consistency of the study model through case studies. This study also analyzed the LCC changes according to the persisting period and the real discount rate of buildings through the sensitivity analysis. When this model is used, it is considered that it is possible to support rational decision- making when selecting the optimal building materials in terms of economy through LCC analysis.

Keywords: Building Material, Lifecycle Cost, LCC Analysis, Decision-Making
