Facility Condition Assessment (FCA)

It is a well known truth that you cannot improve what isn't measured.  Every credible process improvement begins with a benchmarking system.  Dowler Construction Services uses a tool known as the Facility Condition Assessment (FCA) to establish a baseline for your facility.

Our Facility Condition Assessment is a comprehensive on-site survey of every system.  We utilize plans, interviews, and physical inspections to create a Facility Condition Report (FCR) outlining issues found, and priorities of correction. 

The Facility Condition Report is a dynamic document which points the way to the creation of a programmed maintenance plan, the development of an accurate operating budget, and the creation of a fact-based capital plan.  It is also the basis for other facility improvements.

Programmed Maintenance
 

Lack of a routine and scheduled maintenance program negatively impacts the fiscal health of the organization and the environmental health of the facility - both directly affect profitability.   When maintenance is neglected, operating costs increase and asset lives shorten.  Dowler Construction Services will work with you to develop an effective program.

Asset Management 
 
In order to properly preserve or even enhance asset life, it is essential to inventory all of the facility's assets.  Dowler Construction Services produces the inventory and then enters all of the components into a cloud-based asset tracking program.  As repairs or maintenance are performed, that information is entered into the system thereby creating an easily accessed history for that asset.

 

By managing the asset inventory ....

 

  • return on assets (ROA) will be improved

  • accurate assessments of functional life will be developed to assist in accurate capital planning
