The purpose of completing a facilities assessment report is to develop a comprehensive overview of the existing
physical conditions of the building and to analyze the functional educational performance of the existing
instructional and support spaces as they correspond to the District’s current curriculum goals and 21st century
delivery of education.
The physical condition assessment involves a team of design and engineering specialist to conduct an inspection of the existing facilities to measure the condition of the building and infrastructure. This process begins with a visual inspection of the infrastructure and building systems, gather existing building documents, and record observations of maintenance personnel and building occupants. A comprehensive physical condition assessment provides an inspection of the architectural, civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, and life safety components of the building.
The Assessment team utilized a “Building Condition Evaluation Form” that is based upon a universal classification of building systems – UNIFORMAT II. This classification system is commonly utilized to outline and group building elements.
