Facility Condition Assessment
MENG Analysis completed four district-wide facility condition assessments and Study and Survey over a seven year period of time.
In 2002, we completed a Study and Survey for all 104 schools in state inventory. This assessment summarized the current condition of the school district after completion of capital improvements. This report focused primarily on the facility improvement proposals and the planning process supporting this proposed program.
In 2005, MENG Analysis completed a Comprehensive Building Condition and Educational Adequacy and Seismic Evaluation for 80 specific schools throughout the district. We provided the district with a comprehensive report of Backlogs of Maintenance and Repair (BMAR) costs for each of the facilities and their building systems. 73 of the 80 facilities included in this assessment were also reviewed for educational adequacy.
In, 2008, MENG Analysis completed a study and survey contract to update the District’s facility condition information of over 110 facilities.
In 2009, MENG Analysis completed a FCA of 89 facilities. This assessment was similar in scope to the 2006 FCA and included Educational Adequacy and Seismic Assessments.
In 2014, MA completed updated FCA for 107 schools generating predicted renewals and reporting of $507 million in Backlog of Maintenance and Repair (BMAR). Additional work included survey and reporting of educational adequacy.
The district used this information to make decisions about critical capital investments, and to work with neighboring communities near facilities that were being considered for closure.
