Facility Condition Assessments and Solutions

Partner’s Facilities Condition Assessment and Solutions team provides the data you need to optimize your real estate. We begin with an  understanding of your business objectives, then tailor our approach to help you reach them. Our Facility Condition Assessments (FCAs) support capital planning, regulatory compliance, corporate standards, lease negotiations, funding, and more. By providing in-depth facility condition assessments as well as continued support with analysis and implementation, the architects, engineers, and specialists on our Facilities Condition Assessment and Solutions team give you the  tools to move the needle from reactive maintenance spends to proactive facilities management.

The goal of the FCA is to identify:

  • Routine and/or deferred maintenance
  • Systemic deficiencies
  • Remaining useful life (RUL) of all major building systems
  • Capital replacement needs
  • Overall system compliance with the original design/engineering intent
  • Compatibility with contiguous systems
  • Prioritized list of repairs
  • Total building replacement cost

What's Involved

The scope of the FCA  is often customized, but generally includes:

  • Site inspection(s) to observe the general site improvements and conditions of all major building systems
  • Review of pertinent documents such as drawings, as-builts, building records, construction documents, building codes and violations, and maintenance records
  • Data analysis and calculation based on our engineering expertise and experience, our field observations, and accepted cost guides such as Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), Marshall and Swift, and RS Means

Partner can also utilize innovative approaches and incorporate energy conservation, sustainability, and green practices as a hallmark of our services.

These observations, research, and calculations are reported in a detailed Facility Condition Assessment Report which includes projection tables outlining short and long-term expenditures.

The frequency of FCAs depends on various factors, including the age and condition of the facility, usage patterns, and budget constraints. Generally, FCAs are conducted on a regular basis, such as every 3 to 5 years, to ensure that maintenance needs are promptly addressed, and that the facility remains in good condition.

Improved safety and health: Ensuring a safe and healthy environment for occupants.
Reduced operational costs: Preventing costly breakdowns and repairs.
