Facility Condition Assessment

Reading Area Community College Reading, PA



Founded in 1971, Reading Area Community College (RACC) is a public community college located in Reading, PA on a 20 acre campus. RACC offers Associates Degree, Certificate and Diploma programs to its more than 4,500 students from the greater Reading Area and Berks County.

Recently, RACC selected Entech to complete a facility condition assessment of its buildings to identify and prioritize projects, costs, and funding levels necessary to keep the facilities in good condition. Buildings assessed included academic and administrative facilities as well as a warehouse totaling more than 320,000 square feet. Entech identified and recommended more than $9 million of capital improvement, capital renewal and deferred maintenance projects over the next 10 years.

Solution Details

Throughout the 8 building assessment, architectural and MEP professionals surveyed and analyzed building systems throughout each facility. More than 150 projects were identified and prioritized as either immediate, high or low urgency initiatives.

Entech entered all the Reading Area Community College’s FCA and Asset data into the FM-Assistant database, giving Reading Area Community College the ability to budget and manage their projects and campus condition over the next decade.

During the facility condition assessment, Entech met regularly with the Facilities Management Staff to organize the data and formulate funding strategies.

This comprehensive and cumulative facility and asset dataset provides invaluable baseline information that the college can use for years to predict, manage, and budget for capital building projects.
