Aging Building Management: Best Practices In Developing Long-Term Capital Plans

Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

Up to thirty percent of the average organization's annual capital outlay is spent on facilities and related infrastructure. How can an organization ensure it is most effectively leveraging this investment to support operations today and meet the needs of the future?

Optimally managing capital assets requires detailed information about the condition of an organization's facilities and major building systems. Each facility or department must use consistent methods for documenting building requirements and estimating associated costs.

Capital projects must be prioritized using consistent criteria. And the various stakeholders in the capital planning and management process must be able to see the long-term impact of different investment decisions.

In addition to condition information, by considering sustainability recommendations along with systems lifecycle requirements, building owners and managers can optimize recapitalization and greening initiatives.

This live webinar will outline a best practice process for developing a long-term capital plan from requirements gathering and long-term planning to capital budget creation and spend management.
