Facility Condition Assessments

PSFEI has a strong history of helping facility managers efficiently maintain their building and grounds infrastructure. One of the tools used to accomplish this task is a facility condition assessment. PSFEI has developed a quality condition assessment program with experience in building systems operation, building envelope, code compliance, and accessibility requirements. The conditions assessment data is available to clients via a web-accessible application known as WebiFM, which was developed by PSFEI. The application allows facility managers to make long-range planning decisions based on facility and building condition index values, in addition to short-term planning for repairs based on cost estimates and priority levels, developed for each deficiency. These business tools and many others are available in WebiFM to assist facility managers with the maintenance and planning of their operations.
