Planning and managing facilities strategically enables organizations to reduce risk, lower costs, meet regulatory requirements, and improve customer satisfaction. VFA clients have been recognized for successfully implementing innovative ideas, processes and tools to plan and manage facilities for over 15 years. Using IFMA’s Strategic Facility Planning model as a foundation, VFA has partnered with our clients to create a structured Strategic Facilities Capital Planning program. This program effectively combines data, processes, and tools to help organizations plan and manage their facilities strategically, in support of each institution’s specific mission. We would be pleased to discuss how this approach could help you and your organization to be recognized for facilities excellence!
