Abstract

The inability of current approaches to the delivery of building systems to manage change is the root cause of significant challenges facing the modern construction industry. These challenges are manifested in the volatile financial status of construction firms, the difficult communications environment and costly professional liability pitfalls facing the industry. Total Life-Cycle Construction (TLC) is a revised philosophical approach to the information communication system within the design, delivery and operation of complex building systems and facilities. TLC employs the life-cycle principles of Systems Engineering to resolve the organizational challenges which are placing the construction industry at a developmental crossroads.
