Facility Condition Assessment (FCA)
be informed; be confident in your buildings & budgets
Facility managers need to keep campus buildings functioning to their highest potential by performing maintenance that ranges from routine flooring replacements to major space and system renovations.
Simply identifying your deferred maintenance on multi-building campuses can be an arduous challenge, while dealing with day to day operations, not to mention taking maintenance information and creating projects, organizing, prioritizing, budgeting, and reporting progress. To help you make informed decisions when managing your maintenance, our architects, engineers, energy and facility analysts can perform a facility condition assessment for your campus.
After the physical walkthrough assessment is finished, projects and costs are developed to remedy deferred maintenance, and identify capital renewal and capital improvement projects. Projects and costs are inputted into our custom FM-Assistant database software, so it can reside in a collaborative, adaptive, cloud arena and serve your budgeting, reporting, and tracking needs as you travel through your capital planning and budgeting cycles.
Typical FCA Survey Components:

- HVAC Heating & Cooling
- Fire Protection
- Site Improvements
understanding & reporting your building and campus metrics
The true power of collecting all of your project data is in communicating it. To receive proper funding, facility managers need to communicate the needs of your campus in a manner that is understandable to other campus leaders and stakeholders. Turning measured quantitative project data into qualitative key performance indicators that predict outcomes and impact your campus goals and vision and truly resonate with leadership.
Facility Key Performance Indicators (KPIs):
- Facility Condition Index (FCI)
- Total Projects per SF (TPSF)
- FCI / TPSF Matrix
- 10 year budget projections
- Annual renewal costs
- Projects by category / system
- Facility age vs FCI
- Get to good funding
combine and conquer; integrated planning
Integrating campus deferred maintenance data with other data silos and plans like energy conservation, sustainability and GHG emissions, space utilization, GIS, utilities, accessibility, security, and others will allow you to see your campus with a new perspective, collaborating and prioritizing projects and outcomes, maximizing opportunities and efficiencies. Our FM-Assistant database platform easily connects and integrates with other data sources, to allow you to make more informed and better decisions.
