Facility Condition Assessment (FCA)

Facility Management Is A Complex Task

An organization’s facilities are some of its most significant, complex and costly assets. Managing the wealth of information related to those facilities and their various building systems can be an onerous and expensive process particularly for large organizations.

Facility Condition Assessment (FCA)

The FCA consolidates all building data and allows facility managers, capital planners, financial analysts and executives to effectively maintain and manage their facilities portfolio. The data can be leveraged to make the most intelligent, critical, and business-minded decisions with respect to facility spending and capital planning. Many organizations, private or public, who own or manage considerable building assets develop a structured Facilities Capital Planning program.
