Without the right information about the condition of your facility and building systems it’s difficult to plan for the needs of your facility assets. Not every organization has the ability to generate the kind of data they need to make those plans.
That’s where VFA can help.
VFA provides a variety of facility condition assessment services aimed at collecting the information you need to optimize long term facilities investments. Whatever your needs, we help you determine the most cost-effective approach, ensuring an objective and consistent assessment process.
|Facility Condition Assessment
VFA understands that the challenges facing facilities managers can differ from one organization to the next. That’s why we offer a comprehensive facility condition assessment (FCA) tailored to your needs. The FCA will provide thorough information about all current building deficiencies, from structure to systems and components. We then estimate the costs associated with renewal, repair, and code compliance.
The FCA will determine both immediate and long-term cost liabilities for building component lifecycle renewal, deferred maintenance, and code compliance based on industry-standard cost databases from RSMeans and expert cost models. This information will allow you to address not only current operational requirements, but also facility renewal forecasting and capital funding scenarios for your capital project planning efforts.
Once complete, the facility condition assessment data is stored securely in VFA.facility® our flagship facilities capital planning and asset management solution. This powerful combination of expertise and powerful technology will help you plan for your facility’s present and future.
VFA also provides targeted assessments that can focus on industry-specific needs or special areas, either in tandem with a facility condition assessment, or as a separate service.
