Orange County, Fla., faced a dilemma in 2012 that is familiar to maintenance and engineering managers: Many of its more than 400 facilities were showing their age, maintenance costs were rising, and resources to address the issues were getting thin, according to an article from Facility Maintenance Decisions on the FacilitiesNet website.
A decision was made to create a plan to determine a course of action to both contain these rising expenses and build a long-term solution for sustainability. The result was an impressive reduction in utilities.
With that many facilities, needing so much attention, the Orange County team faced the task of fully assessing upgrade needs and determining priorities, given their limited resources. They broke the upgrade plan assessment into several components:
• Needs analysis
• Energy assessment
• Controls analysis
• Certification and compliance
• Costing and recommendations
