Strategic Capital Planning
Gordian Knot

Create an actionable and sustainable facilities capital plan that clearly communicates project rationale.

Strategic Capital Planning elevates the traditional Facilities Condition Assessment (FCA) beyond a list of deficiencies. Gordian facilitates an ongoing partnership between Facilities and Financial leaders to find the right level of technical detail needed to create an actionable, long-term capital plan. This strengthens the business case for facilities reinvestment and aligns with goals, priorities and financial realities.

Establish a baseline of facilities needs as a foundation for enterprise decisioning.

Develop business cases for strategic facilities investments.

Prioritize investment options by creating Building Portfolios.

Establish functional multi-year capital plans to drive action.

Establish a Baseline Assessment

Establish a Baseline Assessment

Rather than spending significant effort on a detailed assessment before a clear strategy has been established, we start with a simple and accurate baseline. This allows us to focus effort on the most important facility issues to develop an effective short- and long-term plan.

Create Tactical Plans for Specific Facilities

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.

Set Priorities and Develop Building Portfolios

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.

Build Strategic Scenarios That Represent Possible Funding Models

The future is inherently uncertain, and plans need to be flexible enough to accomdate various possibilities. Creating different funding scenarios will stress-test the plan and allow your leadership to determine the best path forward.

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.”
