Maximizing campus facilities in 5 steps

Discover your path from deferred maintenance to dynamic capital planning and maximizing performance.

Higher education institutions are currently navigating a complex landscape of aging facilities and budget constraints, compounded by challenges such as enrollment declines and shifting priorities. The practice of cutting costs by delaying regular maintenance and repairs may have delivered a short-term financial performance in previous years but creates a ripple effect of a backlog of expenses, overdue repairs, concerns for the long-term health and safety of occupants, and even the loss of appeal to staff and students.

Deferred maintenance can create an overwhelming list of festering issues that eventually lead to situations where a fix is no longer possible and an entirely new facility is required. But what if you could not only address years of deferred maintenance but also set the stage for a strategic, sustainable future for your campus?
