How to Calculate the Lifespan of any Building?


Here you are asking about Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of structure.

The life span of structure will vary according to the type of structure.

There is no formula available to calculate the life span of any structure.

Different parameters we should take into mind while doing a calculation of life span of structure, they are as follows;

Building Construction Material:

  • RCC structure

Structural Design:

  • Mostly influencing parameter.
  • Vary as per Building Construction Material.

The locality of structure construction: E

  • Earthquake-prone area
  • HFL (High Flood Level) zone

Height of structure.

 Kindly noted that I have attached one photo of the life span of various structures.
