Physical Needs Assessments

Susan Dee has performed physical needs assessments across the northeast, many of which focused on the development of a 20-year capital repair and replacement program. These needs assments included an extensive review of existing building and system conditions; cost estimates for all repairs and replacements; and the development of repair, preventive maintenance, and capital replacement programs. Financial analysis was performed to develop replacement reserve plans. Tenants were surveyed and their responses compiled. A simple database report was developed to enable facility personnel to track the status of their equipment conditions and repairs, to generate work orders, and to support budgets and funding requests.
