The R&R team oversees the university's Facility Condition Assessments (FCA) of facilities that are 20,000 square feet in size or above. This effort encompasses 170 buildings across four sites.
Completion of the assessments provides the university with the following benefits:
VFA, Inc., a facilities asset management and capital planning consulting firm hired by The University of Texas at Austin, will be conducting facilities condition assessments of 21 facilities on Main Campus. The VFA team will be escorted at all times by Zone Maintenance personnel.
See schedules and teams below:
These VFA assessments will be a comprehensive assessment of the selected building’s condition and the condition of its systems, including roofing, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, interior and exterior. The purpose of the assessments is to provide a documentary framework for keeping each facility in good condition by studying the current state of its systems, analyzing its system maintenance requirements, prioritizing its maintenance needs, and projecting future maintenance costs.
Building occupants are asked to cooperate with the VFA team and report building deficiencies and concerns in advance. Although the focus of the assessment is on systems such as climate control, plumbing, or security rather than on isolated maintenance problems such as a loose baseboard or missing ceiling tile, please report any maintenance needs regardless of scope. Contact Program Coordinator Brandy Hamblet.
VFA team members are Alisa Nielsen (architect), Jimmy Thornton (mechanical engineer), and Todd Surette (electrical engineer). All team members will be wearing identifying badges.
