Case Study
Facility Condition Assessments

San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA)


EMG was tasked to perform comprehensive Facility Condition Assessments and Repair Equipment reviews of 18 repair and operations facilities operated by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA). The assessments included development of a baseline inventory of physical and infrastructure assets to be used in a comprehensive Master Plan for SFMTA, and as a tool for Capital Planning and budgets.


EMG fielded multiple teams of Architects and Engineers that reviewed bus and train repair equipment at each facility to document their condition. Detailed reports were generated to document existing structures’ and systems’ current condition, and expected RUL of each component. Life safety issues and immediate repair requirements and routine component replacement schedules were documented. Digital photographs of all assets were collected, as well as photographs of all current deficiencies.

All collected data was populated into EMG’s customized asset management database. This database has the capacity for report generation that enables the SFMTA to plan facility renewal projects based on priorities set, projects that fit within its existing deferred maintenance budget, and initiative funding. Reports, graphics, and digital photos are linked to the database to enable users to view details related to deficiencies or proposed capital projects, and SFMTA can update its CMMS with current information.
