Accurate information about the condition of facilities and building systems forms the foundation for ensuring smooth operations today and planning for future needs. Yet many organizations lack the resources to maintain detailed, accurate data about their facility assets.
Planning Your Assessment Approach
VFA helps clients plan the best assessment strategy for their needs, which may include a mix of different approaches for different types of facilities. VFA offers multi-year assessment contracts to assist organizations in maintaining accurate data for capital planning, and in budgeting for the cost of assessment as part of their long-term capital plan.
Clients select VFA assessment services for three important reasons:
- Credibility – VFA maintains one of the largest teams of dedicated assessment professionals throughout the world.
- Objectivity – VFA offers no follow-on design, construction or program management services. Our only objective is to provide clients with the most accurate and complete information possible.
- Ongoing Value – Our assessors deliver reports but also create a central database of asset information in VFA.facility. Cost estimates are derived from industry-standard cost sources including RSMeans® or Building Cost Information Services (BCIS) as well as proprietary cost sources.
