The City of South San Francisco selected EMG to develop a Comprehensive Facilities Condition and Needs Assessment for 45 city facilities. This Assessment will be a guiding document to prioritize, recommend, and address future facility improvements in the near term.
The team evaluated the general condition of the building(s) and site improvements, reviewed available construction documents in order to familiarize themselves with the physical conditions, settings, and be able to comment on the in-place construction systems, life safety, mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, and the general built environment.
The evaluation team conducted walk-through surveys of the buildings in order to observe building systems and components, identify physical deficiencies and formulate recommendations to remedy the physical deficiencies. A Facility Condition Index (FCI) was calculated for each site.
EMG also included an assessment of building security and occupant safety as part of the Facility Condition report. The City asked for a strategy for efficient placement of employees and location of department office areas.
