Facility Condition Assessment

U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command Fort Detrick, Frederick, MD




The U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command’s (MRMC) mission is to ensure the U.S. Armed Forces remain in optimal health and are equipped to protect themselves from disease and injury, particularly on the battlefield. Headquartered at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Maryland, the MRMC has subordinate installations, both across the United States, and internationally. Entech was contracted to perform an overall Facility Condition Assessment (FCA) of the MRMC command headquarters and eight of their subordinate commands, including one international installation, located in Pirmasens, Germany.

Solution Details

The MRMC has a wide range of building types but is primarily comprised of medical research laboratories and logistics facilities. The FCA surveyed over 120 buildings, totaling over 3.2M square feet, located throughout nine MRMC installations across seven states and one international installment in Pirmasens, Germany. A primary goal of the MRMC’s FCA project was to get an overall view of the MRMC’s various facilities’ conditions and what projects and associated budgets would be needed in the next ten years to maintain those facilities. Analysts from Entech visited each site, compiling reports on projects broken out both by installation and by operating department (activity), of which there were 19, so the MRMC command could budget and assign costs, not only by building, but also by department operating within that building. All of the FCA data and findings were imported and housed within our FM-Assistant software, customized to the MRMC’s needs, so they could report, budget, and manage project progress in real-time in a continuously updated and centralized location.
