Abstract: ISO 15686- Life Design and in particular Part 3 Performance Audits and Reviews is under development. This is timely and will encourage the practice of life design and its life care management and provide sustainable whole life practices for the materials, components, systems and the buildings they make up. Limited success is likely, however, unless an operational service life design system, and developed service life design management
capable of validating design reviews and seeking verification through performance life audits exists. Here, performance life audits should themselves contribute to a client's understanding of their lifecare costs and sen/iceability commitments.
