There are three things you must know to manage your facilities well:
- What you have
- How you use it
- What are your future needs
Understanding what you have starts with knowing what is under your care and what condition it is in.
Physical Asset Management
Physical asset management serves to quantify what you have, often as a precursor to building an FM program, supporting a technology implementation, or as a maintenance task to support an existing program. Utilizing best practices in field surveys and data entry, we begin by establishing data standards and collection methodology. We work collaboratively with you to determine the most appropriate standards, level of data granularity and attribute details.
Facility Condition Assessment
A facility condition assessment (FCA) is a core element of any capital management plan, identifying short- and long-term needs of facilities and/or specific systems.
Our approach to performing an FCA aligns the assessment process with the desired outcome – a repeatable, fair, and defensible process that allows you to integrate the results of the assessment with other asset management strategies and create a solid and defensible capital budget forecast that will:
- Improve maintenance programs
- Manage the backlog of deferred maintenance
- Validate needs and prioritize capital projects
We deliver solutions for facility life-cycle needs, from addressing expected aging and deterioration, to correcting poor construction, to modification of use.
