Facility managers, tasked with maintaining public infrastructure (buildings, roads, bridges, drainage systems and utilities), are challenged with determining their upcoming maintenance budget needs while balancing operational needs. Without the science and data to support their maintenance needs, facility managers often face an uphill battle to secure adequate funding. Knowing what your needs are ahead of time is key and the best way to determine this is by performing a facility condition assessment.
Huitt-Zollars has performed --- for more than 15 years --- comprehensive facility condition and code compliance assessments for schools and universities, cities, public agencies, and federal facilities. Through an innovative application of the condition assessment concepts, we have successfully applied these tested principles to non-building type assets to include over 2,500 miles of flood control drainage channels. In addition, we have effectively utilized and developed web-based assessment tools to provide our clients real time access to their facility assessment data.
