Facilities Conditions Assessment As an integrated team of engineers (MEP and low voltage) and architects, BSA LifeStructures, has the resources and expertise to provide a facility condition assessment (FCA) across a portfolio of existing buildings/assets. Onsite assessments gain a comprehensive understanding of a facility or a group of assets and their systems based on age, materials, design, usage, and life expectancy, to support overall capital and maintenance budgeting and planning. Funds for capital planning and maintenance are consistently being challenged; however, an FCA puts data in your hands that is technically accurate, relevant, and serves as the basis for short, mid, and long-term strategies for funding and establishing a realistic capital plan. An FCA puts the power in your hands to develop a robust strategy that manages risk (due to failing assets, asset components, or compliance) and allows for proactive planning for funding, phasing, and future needs.

What are the benefits of an FCA? • Energy reduction planning • Water consumption planning • Create reliable as-builts

Our team of experts meet with you to develop a specific scope that meets your needs. In addition to an on-site survey and review, other resources may include: • • • • • • • • • •

Interviews with key facility team member 3D Photo Realistic or Lidar scanning Create 3D models using Building Information Modeling (BIM) software Detailed inventory of all existing systems and equipment including age, materials, usage, life expectancy, code and compliance deficiencies Testing of existing systems for performance, capacity, and compliance Benchmarking comparison against data for similar assets Available rebates to offset capital costs and impact pay back periods Presentation materials to assist in sharing a compelling strategy to a variety of audiences Evaluation of energy efficiency and water consumption Integration with building maintenance software or systems

Case Study




BSA conducted a Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing facility infrastructure analysis in 2013 in order to determine the age, integrity and functionality of these aforementioned systems at Marion General Hospital. The MEP systems of this facility were not maintained over the years and updates were not kept up. BSA worked with facilities staff to gain knowledge about existing equipment and issues they’ve had along with site visits to perform an appropriate assessment. The result was an assessment of MEP systems to assist client in planning for capital budgets. This assessment recommended when to replace equipment and any code deficiencies found. In addition a list of short term, mid term, and long term recommendations were made in the report to provide a vision of when major equipment or components of systems should be addressed and why. The assessment aided in the clients ability to plan 10-15+ years into the future financially to keep their MEP infrastructure up and running.

Intent of assessment was to provide: • Current code summary • Review installation of MEP systems that were not code compliant • Assess existing equipment condition and estimate remaining life • Recommend when equipment should anticipate replacement • Air handling unit zone plans and matrix • Exhaust fan matrix • Electrical utility services summary matrix • Switchgear/substation matrix • Transformer matrix • Transfer switch matrix • Distribution panel matrix • Plumbing equipment matrix, such as domestic water, fire protection, fire pumps, fuel oil tanks, fuel oil pumps, water softeners, booster pumps
