CannonDesign: Facility Optimization Solutions launches proprietary facility condition assessment software
CannonDesign Facility Optimization Solutions has released proprietary Facility Condition Assessment (FCA) software that allows organizations to manage existing facility assets and operations more efficiently and effectively.
The FCA software creates a database populated by facility assessment data that becomes a planning tool for organizations, giving them the ability to strategically track facilities and development needs while managing repairs and capital projects in a predictable, efficient manner. Specifically, the database:
- Identifies critical failures of components and systems, code, and ADA compliance issues
- Helps budget for capital projects through cost escalation on an annual basis over a 5-, 10-, or 20-year period
- Systematically justifies prudent expenditures
- Directly corresponds to criteria required by government authorities and client protocols.
The FCA software is available to organizations via the cloud across traditional and mobile platforms, serving as a web-based facility tool for assessment, analysis and action. CannonDesign’s team of licensed architects, engineers, and cost-estimating professionals is capable of executing the assessment to populate the facility data.
Data collected by the assessment team can be uploaded in the evening, quality checked and available for viewing the next day. The software is already driving value for a number of organizations including Buffalo Public Schools, University of Illinois, and Charlotte County, Fla.
