MENG Analysis Approach to FCA
Multi-disciplinary teams, with on-site cost estimating, employ a rigorous systems-based methodology to ensure thoroughly accurate property analyses. We use teams of experts who have specialized in the design and construction of similar types of facilities as that under analysis. This same team approach and methodology is used whether we investigate the condition of a condominium association's single facility or an entire state inventory of K-12 and higher education facilities.
Services combine pure condition assessments with analyses of facility improvements and modifications necessary to support client-specific operational or program requirements. MENG Analysis provides its clients with conceptual design and cost information for future tenant improvements and adaptive re-use alternatives. Such planning information is invaluable and incorporated into facility analysis services.
We work on behalf of both public and private property owners, or buyers in cooperation with legal representatives and real estate brokers, to identify condition deficiencies, backlogs in maintenance and repair (BMAR). Our independent opinions identify remaining useful lives of systems, costs for repairs or replacement of systems and current replacement values (CRV).
Experience in completing facility analyses indicate the following key elements to a successful analysis:
Review of "As-Built" documentation
Team inclusion of cost estimators
Facilitated workshops of O&M staff, managers, and planners to collect and document anecdotal information.
Industry standard condition assessment matrices and report formats
