FACILITY / BUILDING CONDITION ASSESSMENT
The cornerstone of successful facilities management is knowledge. While most facilities managers know their buildings, and their staff, an additional piece of necessary knowledge is a comprehensive plan for dealing with facilities renewal. This need for planning data is the basis of the facilities assessment service offered by ISES. The Facility Condition Assessment (FCA) services we provide are intended to deliver to you a detailed plan for facilities renewal / renovation.
The Facility Condition Assessment is ISES Corporation’s flagship service, and, as the name implies, we conduct a thorough assessment of each building. We inspect the properties, determine what needs to be renewed, what needs to be repaired, and what needs to be altered. An FCA provides you with a complete, detailed plan of action for renewing your physical plant. It addresses code upgrade issues and facility use changes, along with the more mundane life cycle renewal needs. A complete Life Cycle Model (LCM) is provided for each building. The FCA is based on actual conditions at each individual site and allows for detailed customization based on the local environment. Learn More!
Budget-conscious facilities managers might be interested in obtaining an LCM as a stand-alone service. The LCM provides an inventory of major components and systems within a facility. These elements are programmed for renewal based on predetermined expected useful life cycles. This tool, while significantly less expensive than the Assessment, will not provide a detailed plan for facilities renewal. Rather, using industry standard life cycles, it will predict required budget levels for future years. This information is invaluable in supporting long-range facilities budget requirements, but does not provide the detailed planning information necessary for actual implementation.
