Facility Condition Assessments


The cornerstone of effective facilities management

A facility condition assessment (FCA) is a physical survey that allows for deferred maintenance and capital renewal data to be collected. The FOS FCA process and deliverables stand out from other industry providers. We gather empirical system and component-level data about client facilities to create customized solutions. We collaborate with our partners and develop processes designed to capitalize on existing information and knowledge. We do not contract out — all of our team members are full-time employees who are invested in holistic client success. Let us help you understand the condition and needs of the assets you own, address your deferred maintenance backlog, and create strategic capital planning and asset management solutions.

Facility condition index 

Facility condition index (FCI) is an industry-standard key performance indicator and benchmarking tool. FCI is a ratio of deferred maintenance deficiencies (DMD) to current replacement value (CRV).


Developing an accurate FCI means meticulously estimating the costs associated with deferred maintenance at the building system and component level, and developing a true CRV that doesn’t depend on generic construction cost publications. Our experienced in-house cost estimation department is an industry leader in delivering accurate cost estimates for our assessment, design, engineering, and construction projects.

CSI UniFormat

UniFormat, published by the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), is our assessment language. Facility condition assessments vary in detail based on need and budget, and UniFormat allows us to adapt accordingly.

ASTM E2018 – 15

ASTM E2018-15, Standard Guide for Property Condition Assessments, is a minimum guideline for our assessments.

Multidisciplinary team

Our dedicated team of licensed architects and engineers, construction cost estimators, constructors, software designers, and facility engineers collect on empirical facility condition assessment data for our services. We hold ourselves to the highest standard of detail and accuracy with a commitment to quality assurance.

FCA Reports

Our facility condition assessment reports are tailored to each of our unique clients. They are designed to convey information from concept to detail, allowing users to quickly understand themes and trends and dive as deeply into the data as desired.
