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.
