     Title: Life-Cycle Costing Calculator
Choosing a corrosion protection system is a critical step in the design of any project. The estimated annual cost of corrosion is a staggering 3% of the Australian GDP and the life-cycle cost of corrosion-related maintenance is typically two- to five-times the initial cost.

The GAA has developed a new micro-site to allow users to calculate the initial and total life costs of 30+ other corrosion protection systems against hot dip galvanized steel.

Based on the information you provide, the Life-Cycle Cost Calculator (LCCC) will generate a customised report detailing all costs associated with maintaining the structure over the desired project service life, including the time value of money.

You can access the Life Cycle Cost Calculator here. More information on Life Cycle Costing of hot dip galvanized coatings, including the sustainable features of the process, is available from the GAA.
