Facility Condition Assessments
Whether you are managing an existing asset or considering a new asset, a thorough understanding of the condition of the property in question will help you manage liabilities or optimize your return. Scout engineers perform Facility Condition Assessments (FCAs) to help property owners and managers optimize and maintain the physical condition and value of assets, develop capital budgets, and prioritize resources.
Sustainment/Restoration/Modernization and Long-Term Facility Planning
Federal, state, and local government agencies are under tremendous pressure to operate with attention to budget, at times, reacting to sudden reductions in facility management budgets. Planning for, and keeping up with, facility maintenance requirements can be complex and time-consuming, especially for owners with large building footprints. There can be competing priorities, including users with strong opinions about what should be addressed, and limited funding to address those priorities. If not properly planned, maintenance requests can feel reactive instead of proactive and strategic. Scout’s engineers and planners have the experience to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of this process and approach facility management from a knowledge-based long-range planning perspective.
Electrification is the process of replacing technologies that use fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) with technologies that use electricity as a source of energy. Depending on the resources used to generate electricity, electrification can potentially reduce carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions from the transportation, building, and industrial sectors. Scout’s team of engineers and scientists can perform these studies to assist property managers on how electrification can reduce emissions; possibilities and potential challenges of electrification in the transportation, building, and industrial sectors; and policy options for encouraging electrification.
