Life Expectancy: Beyond the Expected (5 of 12)

12 factors to consider when accurately determining life expectancy of assets and elements:

Quality of design, installation and commissioning

A qualified engineer must be used to determine life expectancy outside the accepted ATO benchmarks (this is called ‘self assessment’).
