You just received your Facilities Condition Assessment Report - Now what?

Joseph M. Lalley, MBA, ATP
Assoc VP for Facility Operations

The long road to obtaining a facilities condition assessment is over. RFPs sent, assessment team contracted, someone in your organization spent hours getting them around campus and into spaces you did not know existed, and the final report is in-hand. Now what? Joseph Lalley relates Northeastern University’s experience incorporating facility condition assessment data into a deferred maintenance strategy and multi-year capital plan, and he provides advice to get the most value from the process. He identifies key must-do details for data validation, cost adjustment and project budgeting, understanding “Replacement Costs,” and marketing the result while piggybacking on programmatic projects.
