Assessment & Planning

Go Beyond the Traditional Facilities Condition Assessment to Create an Actionable Investment Plan

Go Beyond the Traditional Facilities Condition Assessment to Create an Actionable Investment Plan

Ensure resources are channeled to the highest priorities.

Assessment & Planning is a new approach to the traditional FCA that provides you with the tools to strengthen the business case for facilities reinvestment and align project selection with institutional goals and financial realities. The first step to reaching your facilities goals starts with a comprehensive technical assessment. Our team will partner with you to:

Generate a credible list of asset conditions and deficiencies

Consolidate existing facilities data

Conducting a comprehensive building walk-through

Create estimates for repairs, replacements and renewals using RSMeans data from Gordian

Set the Course for the Future with a New Way FCA

We can help you get your facilities investment plans on track and create sustainable results.
Contact a Gordian representative or keep scrolling to learn how we do it.

We conduct interviews with facilities managers, organizational leaders and other key stakeholders to:

  • Validate project cost estimates
  • Confirm identified recommendations are consistent with operational insight
  • Acquire operator input regarding repairs, priority and timeframe
  • Create a more accurate project list
  • Secure buy-in from the team responsible for the work

We’ll use our propriety Building Portfolios process to strategically segment buildings with similar functions or priorities. This helps you form unique investment strategies and performance metrics that engage stakeholders in a conversation about priorities and mission.

Customized Strategy Tools

Multi-Year Capital Plans

With portfolios in place and an understanding of past investments, we engage leadership to explain the makeup of the backlog, support funding allocation and develop multi-year capital plans based for a strategically selected group of buildings.

Prioritized Project Selection

By applying investment criteria and timeframes to project needs, we will work with you to establish a custom scoring methodology that ranks projects and balances investments. This additional support helps ensure confidence with stakeholders to guide and accelerate decision-making.

“The process was thorough and provided a level of analysis we have only dreamed of. We now have a complete understanding of each of our systems and buildings to help us prioritize what projects to invest in with finite resources.”
