Facility Condition Assessment

Design Group Facility Solutions provides facility condition assessment services allowing clients to optimize long-term facility investments. We use a comprehensive facility condition assessment (FCA) methodology to determine current building deficiencies and estimated costs associated with renewal, repair, and code compliance.

The FCA determines immediate and long-term costs liabilities for building component lifecycle renewal, deferred maintenance, code compliance, and functional inadequacies based on an industry-standard cost database.  Clients use the FCA to address operational requirements, facility renewal forecasting, and funding scenarios for capital project planning.
