University of Missouri System
ISES Corporation has been the provider of choice for Facility Condition Assessment services at the University of Missouri System since 2000, when we began working with the University of Missouri at Columbia. Over the past 13 years, we have inspected 128 buildings, representing 7.4 million square feet, on that campus on multiple occasions. In 2001, ISES began conducting FCAs at the University of Missouri at Kansas City (40 facilities, 3 million square feet). The following year, we conducted our first assessment of the Rolla campus (now the Missouri University of Science and Technology), where we inspected 43 buildings and 1.5 million square feet. The University of Missouri at St. Louis requested our services in 2010, and we inspected 39 facilities comprising 1.75 million square feet, completing the four-campus system.
In all cases, ISES conducted a visual, nondestructive examination of the facilities and developed a comprehensive database of existing conditions for the campuses, detailing current deficiencies and anticipated capital needs for the ensuing 10 years.
From time to time, ISES has also completed special facility assessments for the System. On one occasion, ISES was asked to reassess an intricate building. According to the Assistant Director of Facility Operations at the University of Missouri, Columbia, “[The ISES] engineer was almost flawless in our recent project. She worked both the engineering and architectural sides of a reaudit of a 300,000 SF building. The project was a challenge. The final product met the need and our schedule. She is definitely on the A team.”
The quality of our initial engagement and the client’s satisfaction with our product is evidenced by the long-running nature of our partnership with the University.
In addition, the System’s Board of Curators has taken an intense interest in the capital planning process and now considers facilities planning issues in its budgetary process. The Facility Condition Assessments conducted by ISES have been instrumental in this change in approach.
