New Web Tool Allows Facility and Corporate Real Estate Managers to Model Future Needs in Minutes
BOSTON—March 12, 2014—VFA, Inc., the leading provider of end-to-end solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management, today announced “Model My Building™,” a new web tool that provides facility and corporate real estate managers with a simple, rapid way to preview their facilities’ potential capital spending needs over the next 20 years.
VFA’s flagship software service, VFA.facility, allows users to analyze current facility condition data by demonstrating when future funding needs will occur, and to use that information to help develop defensible capital plans and budgets. Model My Building™, accessible on vfa.com, provides a rapid preview of what facility managers can learn about their buildings and capital planning needs. By entering just five basic pieces of information about a sample building, they 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.
Anyone can access Model My Building via a registration form at http://www.vfa.com/model-building-capital-planning-tool. Once registered, visitors can run and print reports multiple times for different building types.
