We are currently providing facility condition assessment and energy consulting services to the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in Atlanta, GA. In an effort to help prioritize Georgia Tech's capital and maintenance needs, we will perform a comprehensive facility condition assessment for 112 buildings spanning more than 6.5 million square feet over the next five years.
In our first year of the contract, Faithful+Gould is assessing 15 buildings totaling 1.2 million square feet. The buildings comprise laboratories, classrooms and the campus recreation center. One of the buildings is the Aquatic Center, originally built for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. Also included in our scope of work is the assessment of the on-campus gas utility distribution infrastructure and central plants. Another 22 buildings totaling 1.3 million square feet have been assigned in the second contract year along with the central steam distribution system and central plants.
Our scope consists of facility condition assessments, collection of energy data and assistance in preparation of scope documentation of selected capital expenditure requirements. All information will be entered into our iPlanTM software delivery platform. Integrating this with Georgia Tech's current management software platform, Faithful+Gould is enhancing and updating Georgia Tech's portfolio information. Capital needs are identified, categorized, prioritized and accurately estimated. Additionally, Georgia Tech will be able to access and utilize iPlanTM over the course of the assignment and beyond to evaluate its benefits and advantages for the Institute's long term planning horizon.
When the assignment is complete, Georgia Tech will have an asset management system that is a much more useful and powerful tool to program facility operations with certainty and confidence, as befits a great technological university.
