Facility Analysis

Most institutions will function differently after the pandemic. Will your facility be ready for these changes? A Facility Analysis is a useful tool to examine the future ability of your facility to perform your mission. A facility analysis should include the following steps:

  1. Mobilizing a team, including the architect and key owner representatives, to establish a work plan.

  2. Collection of data including building code review, reviewing existing documents, field verification and constituent interviews.

  3. Analyzing the data, estimating quantities and projected costs.

  4. A preliminary presentation of findings.

  5. Presentation of the final analysis report.

The facility analysis will provide useful information for establishing budgets and capital planning based on data and not a general guess.
