What is your FCI estimate saying about your facilities?

0-10% (Excellent):

What it means: Your organization’s facility profile is strong and predominantly includes new or recently renovated buildings with limited risk. Your facilities are well-maintained and reliable, and you are largely dealing with repair and replacement needs of a more aesthetic or general nature.

Investment strategy: At this stage, your investment focus is typically capital upkeep, enabling your team to take a more measured approach to selecting projects rather than the projects picking you.

10.1 – 20% (Good):

What it means: Your organization’s facility profile is likely aging, but still well-maintained with limited risk. Your physical portfolio is defined by younger spaces, coming up on their first batch of lower cost system replacements. Your spaces are beginning to show their age with sections of wear and tear requiring more significant investment on a case-by-case basis.

Investment strategy: Your investment approach is typically one of comprehensive stewardship, intended to manage the needs of younger spaces and address lifecycle needs before they become past due and create additional risk to your facilities. This is prime time to start planning for the next 5 to 10 years of capital investment.

20.1 – 40% (Fair):

What it means: Your organization’s facility profile is beginning to show clear signs of aging, presenting at times a dated appearance with worn finishes. You may be experiencing an increase in maintenance requests in some of your buildings as systems are nearing the end of their useful life.

Investment strategy: Your investment approach is typically one of managed care. Significant investment in select infrastructure systems must be considered on a case-by-case basis. The prevailing investment strategy aims to cope with the challenges posed by aging systems and address failures reactively. However, this approach may inadvertently be amplifying costs and placing additional strain on your operational teams.

40.1 – 60% (Poor):

What it means: Your organization’s facility profile is undergoing accelerated aging, with apparent and increasing deterioration. Infrastructure is vulnerable to failures, leaks and outages and costly lifecycle replacements are likely required. You may be experiencing unexpected work orders or spending more of your time reacting to building needs.

Investment strategy: Your investment approach is typically a mix of managed care and reactive crisis response. As the wear and tear escalates, there is an urgent need to invest to reset the clock and then adopt a proactive keep-up strategy that will allow for sustainable, cost-effective solutions for long-term success.

Above 60.1% (Deficient):

What it means: Your organization’s facility profile looks worn with obvious deterioration and major building components are no longer running efficiently and, in some cases, may be risking failure. Your space is defined by widespread reliability issues and the risk to business continuity is high, increasing capital demands and the strain on your operational teams. You may be facing difficult decisions on the future use of some of your space and are faced with having to prioritize which project should be funded next.

Investment strategy: Your investment approach is typically one of reactive crisis response to catch up with the intensifying vulnerabilities and prevent major system failures that compromise program and resilience. Major renovation, demolition or other divestment strategies should be considered in troubled facilities to alleviate pressure on resources. In scenarios where there is more need than funding available to address it all, a strategic analysis is necessary.
