VFA has released a new web tool that allows facility and corporate real estate managers to model future needs in minutes. Model My Building™ provides a rapid preview of what facility managers can learn about their buildings and capital planning needs over the next 20 years. At the core of the tool is VFA’s flagship software service, VFA.facility, which allows users to analyze current facility condition data, demonstrate when future funding needs will occur, and use that information to help develop defensible capital plans and budgets. By entering just five basic pieces of information about a sample building, users can see when large spikes in spending are likely to occur; what types of systems, such as HVAC, boilers, roofs, electrical, will require replacement, including when and at what cost; and the details of renewal costs by year or by system. The results are derived from a model of typical buildings and are not intended to be used for decision-making regarding specific buildings.
