Condition Assessments & Asset Management

Our personnel have expert knowledge in facility assessments and have completed hundreds of facility assessment studies for various types of buildings worldwide.

We are strong advocates of life cycle costing when evaluating equipment replacement and factor the residual operational life of equipment into life cycle costing. This holistic analysis makes equipment replacement based simply on energy saving quite often less attractive or not economically feasible. Our first approach is almost always augmenting the existing equipment with additional features (i.e. heat recovery and similar) than to replace existing equipment at around mid-life expectancy range.

Our personnel are certified in advanced investigation techniques such as infrared thermography and ultrasonic testing of pipe thickness and utilize these in facility condition assessments. We have completed numerous piping studies utilizing video scoping inspections for storm and sanitary drainage piping systems.
