…and let the facilities take care of themselves!
100,720 square feet
Our clients have more than $800,000,000 of deficiencies
And they have more than $970,000,000 of capital renewal needs over the next 20 years
Statewide there is more than $1,000,000,000 of deficiencies
And there is more than $2,000,000,000 of capital renewal needs over the next 20 years
But where will the money come from?????
How can you take control? $60,000,000 per year.
Facility $60,000,000 per year.
We believe that a facility condition assessment is the core or center of all good facility management programs
Without it, all other data is less useful
You can spend money, clean, maintain, monitor energy, and even talk to the buildings, but with out a starting point and progress monitoring, how can you have a score card of the impact of your decision making on the long term care of the most expensive asset you have, your facilities!
An FCA is an inventory of a facilities systems and their condition
It identifies each building system
gives it a dollar value
identifies its born on date
assigns a life expectancy
determines its current condition
estimates when it will no longer be reliable
advises what the renewal cost will be
An FCA also identifies actual issues that the facility may have
These may be referred to as deficiencies
they are identified
a description of why it is an issue
it is categorized
it is prioritized
it has a cost estimate to correct
The results of the FCA can be used to create an industry standard analysis of the relative condition to the replacement value of the asset
The formula is:
Cost to Correct Deficiencies
Current Facility Replacement Value
A building with a current replacement value of $25 million that has total needs of $5 million would have an FCI of
We like to include all costs required to provide a proper learning environment:
Any database must be maintained to continue to be useful. It is meant to be dynamic, not static
As requirements are completed, they must be removed from the database
As new issues arise, they should be entered
As deficiencies are corrected, you should:
We suggest that you develop at least
1. A 20 year strategic vision to deliver educational programming, and how your “campuses” fit that vision
Determine what your desired final outcome might look like
