A key design and construction consideration for any sustainable building is its whole life costing. Many factors must be considered including maintenance, repair, refurbishment, waste, energy usage, demolition and disposal.
SAS International partnered with a recognised quantity surveying practice to conduct research into the overall lifetime cost of ceiling materials. The report highlighted significant benefits of metal in the context of the whole life cost of a building.
Based on a 20-year lifespan, the report projected achievable cost savings of 47% using SAS systems compared with non-metal alternatives. In addition, the industry consensus was that non-metal products would be considered unserviceable after a period of 10-15 years.
SAS International is totally committed to the provision of enhanced value to our clients throughout product specification, design, manufacture and installation.
