Financial Modeling and Valuation Analysis

Financial Modeling and Valuation Analysis

Financial modeling refers to the task of putting together an abstract representation of a real world financial situation. World-wide organizations of today employ this model to forecast their business outcomes and think through their financial strategies. Financial modeling can also help in summarizing events and providing effective directions for future decisions or actions.

Decision-makers need tools that help them translate quantitative and qualitative information to accurately forecast the financial outcomes for their business. Financial models can be constructed by using advanced software or by simply jotting it down on a paper; the medium used is not as important as the logic used to build the model.

facility condition assessment

Facility Condition Assessments

A detailed understanding of a facility can help to prioritize future building investments

Any organization with capital assets needs to maintain those facilities in a safe and cost-effective manner. The FCA process allows these organizations to prioritize and schedule necessary maintenance. If they wait to react to problems after they become obvious, it is usually too late to implement cost-effective remediation. What might have been a $50,000 remediation project becomes a $5 million or more replacement project. A client may also use an FCA to assess a facility that it intends to acquire.

GCAS’s Facility Condition Assessments provides a snapshot of the condition of a facility to determine the capital budget needs for major repairs and replacements over several years. As a result, FCAs help property owners know how to better prioritize funds for repair and replacement. In general, an FCA is an assessment that visually identifies major deficiencies for all of the systems in a facility. The systems included in an FCA include: site systems, structural systems, building exteriors, roof systems, mechanical systems, electrical systems, plumbing systems, fire and life safety systems, conveying systems and interior finishes.

GCAS and Our Technical Associate has experience with a variety of buildings, including Government Buildings and Essential Facilities, Educational Campuses, Commercial Buildings, Healthcare Facilities, Aviation Complexes, and Park Sites.

GCAS provides software solutions to manage collected data in a secure, cloud-based environment, empowering clients with dynamic search and reporting capabilities. Our asset management software solutions can migrate data to popular Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) and Capital Planning and Management Systems (CPMS).

Some of the key benefits of Facility Condition Assessments are:

• Defensible capital plans.

• Facility Condition Index (FCI) benchmarking.

• Clear, regular maintenance requirements.

• The identification of potential safety hazards..

• Energy conservation opportunities.

Life Cycle Assessment

Life Cycle Assessment

Life Cycle Assessment is taking off globally importance to help project owners to quantify and improve environmental performance to meet global and national climate change impact reduction targets. Life Cycle Assessment is the leading solution for understanding, quantifying and communicating the environmental and social credentials and performance of products, services, processes, assets, and organizations.

Life Cycle Assessment is a method of analyzing the environmental impact of products and services that consider their full life cycle (cradle-to-grave). A key strength of LCA is that it studies whole product systems and thus enables a business to avoid mitigating one environmental impact at the expense of aggravating another.

LCA’s are completed for a variety of reasons. First, it reduces the life cycle impacts, also cut energy and other costs. Assessing and reducing your sustainability impact has a similar effect to an efficiency audit. The results will identify the most cost-effective way for you to operate. Second, the public increasingly demands information about the sustainability features of the products they buy.

The following important applications of Life Cycle Assessment are increasingly being adopted by businesses internationally:

Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)

EPD is the international standard to communicate your product or service environmental credentials to the market.

Building Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

Building Life Cycle Assessment is the most comprehensive method of assessing building environmental impacts over the complete building lifetime. This methodology has recently been incorporated in the Green Building Council of many countries.

GCAS Provides

We also participate in numerous research programs to determine long-term energy scenarios in the global economy. Our clients include major global energy companies, equipment manufacturers, industries, and governmental bodies.

Energy Modelling & Simulation is the virtual or computerized simulation of a building or complex that focuses on energy consumption, utility bills and life cycle costs of various energy-related items such as air conditioning, lights, and hot water. It is also used to evaluate the payback of green energy solutions like solar panels and photovoltaics, wind turbines and high-efficiency appliances. To understand energy modeling, it’s important to understand building simulation.

Building simulation is the process of using a computer to build a virtual replica of a building. In layman’s terms, the building is built from its component parts on a computer and a simulation is performed by taking that building through the weather conditions of an entire year. In a way, building simulation is a way to quantitatively predict the future and thus has considerable value. Building simulation is commonly divided into two categories: Load Design, and Energy-Analysis. The common phrase for building simulation when energy is involved is Energy-modeling.

Load Design is used to determine:

• Air conditioning loads (the amount of cooling/heating energy needed by space/system/building);
• Volumetric airflow requirements (the amount of air needed to cool/heat a space);
• Equipment capacities (since equipment may condition multiple spaces);
• Supply Temperatures;
• Hydronic Plant capacities (worst case simultaneous load);
• Similarities and differences between equipment options for heating and cooling a space.

Energy-Analysis or Energy-modelling is used to:

• Predict the monthly energy consumption and bills;
• Predict the annual energy cost;
• Annual CO2 emissions;
• Compare and contrast different efficiency options;
• Determine life cycle payback on various options.

GCAS Energy Services is an energy intelligence and consulting company. Our experts will help you to tackle key energy and climate issues and make sound strategic and business decisions. We provide solutions, consulting and training to key energy actors in the Middle East Region.

Environmental Product Declarations

Environmental Product Declarations

An EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) is a verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the life-cycle environmental impact of a product.

The International EPD System is a global programme for environmental declarations based on ISO 14025 and EN 15804.

Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are  Eco-labels that display data of predetermined environmental parameter categories according to the international standard ISO 14025.

EPDs aim at supplying and easily communicating reliable and externally verified environmental information and provide a platform for the fair comparison of the environmental performance of products and services.

Why is Environmental Product Declarations important?

There is a rapidly growing demand for quantitative environmental information from companies and their stakeholders. Based on Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), EPDs provide this kind of information with an exact, reliable, objective, and verifiable way.

Environmental Product Declarations are being used internationally in the procurement processes of public and private sectors, as dependable evidence of the environmental performance of materials and services. Moreover, the quantified, structured and homogenized information supplied by the EPDs, enables the Eco-design and Eco-innovation for products and services.
