Today’s Challenges in Life Cycle Costing for Bridge Design Interview by Helen Winsor, Construction IQ Jasper Schavemaker, LCC consultant at Rijkswaterstaat, joins Construction IQ to discuss the challenges and lessons learned in Life Cycle Costing, looking specifically at Bridge Design, and what he sees as the most important developments so far in 2012 and looking ahead to 2013.Construction IQ: Jasper, welcome to the show. How are you today?J Schavemaker: I’m fine. Thank you, Helen.Construction IQ: Great of you to join us. So, to start I guess, please, could you introduceyourself to us and let the audience know a bit more about what interest led your role as LCCconsultant at Rijkswaterstaat?J Schavemaker: Well, my name is Jasper Schavemaker and I work at Rijkswaterstaat. Since2008 I am a project leader and senior consultant on life cycle cost at Rijkswaterstaat andwe’ve been working on methodologies, standards and improved transparency both asimplementation and projects simultaneously. And we have a team of six specialists workingon life cycle costs and decision-making, procurement, maintenance, cost figures andimplementation.Construction IQ: Great introduction. And, so, how did you become involved in life cyclecosting from the outset?J Schavemaker: Well, before I was a technical manager at Rijkswaterstaat responsible forthe technical scope of construction on our overall projects. And at that time I found out that itwas difficult to define the scope for the life cycle. So, nobody really asked for it, there were nostandards such as which lifespan should be concerned or what discount rates to use, and thatway project management became just a way to finish projects within time, quality and cost ona project level, but not on a life cycle level or a network level. And, so, after one and a halfyears I changed jobs to the asset management department where my manager asked me tostart the life cycle cost development and implementation.Construction IQ: Great. So, could you briefly describe the life cycle cost project? What werethe main challenges and lessons learnt and the scope and impact of this project?__________________________________________________________________________To download this interview in full please click here: bit.ly/PgwbWNFor more information on this subject, you may be interested in attending Bridges Europe2012, due to take place 29-31 October.
