Taking a lifecycle focused approach to planning and prioritizing deferred maintenance needs, including those for equipment, can lead to tremendous impacts on the value and overall lifecycle of our clients facilities and equipment. By implementing improvements that drive down operating, energy, and maintenance costs first, our clients can reallocate dollars wasted on inefficient equipment and reallocate these dollars for future capital maintenance needs.

As part of a total facility condition assessment, energy management, conservation evaluations, and audits can be added to a scope of work to make the complete process even more efficient. ALPHA works to identify building-specific systems where readily achievable energy conservation opportunities exist and integrates those recommendations into the overall capital plan. Evaluations are based on LEED® reference materials for Green Building Operations and Maintenance and on ASHRAE standards for Level 1 and Level 2 energy audits. Unique building scoring metrics and benchmarking are capable of being developed along with flexible, custom databases. 

Adjustments to inventory (based on Site Inspections) can include Documentation, System of Record (including FOS) and Disposal. Compiling information from installation staff, Site Inspections or Acquisition/Disposal documentation; adjustments to the Real Property Inventory can be processed.

Real Property Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) include site inspection and validation, inventory adjustments of site inspections, reconciliation of records, research for asset folders, system of record validation, and system of record updates to provide the necessary support our client requires. 

Real Property asset folders, while informative, often miss updates made by inventory adjustments. Asset folder review will incorporate up-to-date information per system of record, with source documentation supporting all actions concerning individual assets. This information is known or determined by the installation through normal RP activity.

During Inventory Adjustments and Reconciliation, subsequent documentation is required, found or many times stumbled upon. This documentation requires research against requirements of Real Property activity and placed in proper asset folders with source documentation to satisfy CFOA. This information is often unknown, but must be accounted for during initial consideration of Real Property record reviews.

A Real Property requirement to be performed for validation of Existence, Category Code, Quantity and Location. This provides a base requirement of sustaining installation owned Real Property and tracking the asset’s status.

We identify the quantity, type, size of spaces, as well as the desired experiences intended for the occupants. We customize our approach for each project, apply strategies for best practices, utilize evidence-based design, and take advantage of emerging technologies to arrive at a solution for our clients needs.

Cross walk of current System of Record to an extract provided by installation staff, of the previous database for validation of required data elements. Work with installation staff to determine gaps in information and process to completely update the system of record.

Completing changes in database only, which requires information ready for input from installation/staff validated source documentation. Source documentation would include valid signature in the last 30-days, required Memorandum(s) of Record, and any additional installation requirements.
