Facility Assessment Reports
The purpose of completing a facilities assessment report is to develop a comprehensive overview of the existing physical conditions of the building and to analyze the functional educational performance of the existing instructional and support spaces as they correspond to the District’s current curriculum goals and a 21st-century learning environment.
The physical condition assessment involves a team of design and engineering specialist who conduct an inspection to assess the condition of the building and its infrastructure. This process begins with a visual inspection of the infrastructure and building systems, gathering existing building documents, and recording observations of maintenance personnel and building occupants. A comprehensive physical condition assessment includes an inspection of the architectural, civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, and life safety components of the building.
The Assessment team utilized a “Building Condition Evaluation Form” that is based upon a universal classification of building systems – UNIFORMAT II. This classification system is commonly utilized to outline and group building elements.
