Whole Life Costing |
Cost & Programme Management

The CATO Whole-Life Costing module delivers cash flow forecasting based on the running costs of a project, with the ability to report at all levels of detail. It supports multiple buildings and can associate asset replacement with FM costs.

CATO Whole Life Costing is the industry standard with its ability to deliver post-construction reports on asset replacement, FM and operational costs for the building’s lifecycle.
