Life Cycle Assessment

Malaysian biomass life cycle projection

Key to any major infrastructure project is projecting its cost or value over it's life cycle, so we develop standards-based projections that integrate financial and environmental dimensions.

We have taught Life Cycle Valuation internationally for CaGBC and two Canadian universities, advised BC's executive and provided guidance on capital planning for BC Treasury Board.  The largest life cycle model we led was implemented and originally expected to save the province of BC C$7bn (in 2018 exceeding C$11bn).

  • "This is more sophisticated than I have seen from any of the major accounting firms" - Tony Guglielmin following his review/audit of one of our life cycle models.  Former CFO Canada Line project, a $1.7bn P3, CFO, Ballard Engineering.
  • "Not only are you right, but I had better check what we're teaching our students because I think we're wrong.  If any questions it tell them to call me." - Michael Goldberg on review/audit of one of our models.  Dr Goldberg is Dean Emeritus, University of BC Sauder School of Business and former head, Universitas 21, a collaboration of 21 universities setting real estate and economic education standards.


For a Malaysian company, remodelled their proposed biomass and waste processing project exceeding 1,000 tonnes per day to optimize value.  In Canada, developed a projection for a comprehensive IRM model to integrate liquid and solid waste, including risk and sensitivity analysis, GHG models, with 1,800 cash flows. For the Government of Canada, confidential review of leases, contracts and operating models for an internationally-renowned asset, completing sensitivity analysis and life cycle review with recommendations on strategic restructuring.
