NEW YORK, May 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Faithful+Gould is pleased to announce its Strategic Facility Consulting (SFC) team has been commissioned by the Fulton County General Services and Public Works Department to perform a county-wide Facility Condition Assessment (FCA) for Fulton County, Georgia.
Receiving approximately 855 work orders each month for its buildings—most of which are public buildings that serve the community—county officials recognized that there are several issues in the facilities throughout Fulton County. To ensure that the facilities are able to meet residents' needs and also use tax dollars efficiently, officials sought an outside consultant to perform a FCA in order to fix the building issues and prioritize maintenance, identifying Faithful+Gould as the ideal project manager for the task.
The team has been selected to perform work throughout the entire county, which includes assessments for a total of 110 major buildings, embodying 3.6 million square feet. The work will be performed in two phases. The first, scheduled to finish in February 2017, includes county libraries, fire stations, senior and multi-purpose centers and courts. The second will complete at the end of April 2017 and will include the government center, arts centers and gymnasiums.
"This project poses unique challenges, which our SFC team looks forward to providing solutions for. We focused on the scope of work and our project plan during the proposal and interview phases, and now our team is ready to face these challenges head on," stated Jonathan Bailey, technical director. "We are excited to be able to help the county develop a strategic plan in order to address the backlog of deferred maintenance, as well as plan for the future."
The project is currently underway and the SFC team has already completed assessments on more than 80 buildings, totaling more than 2.8 million square feet.
