Facility Condition Assessment – Northwest Neighborhood Center



  • Facility Condition Audit
  • Lifecycle Cost Assessment
  • Risk Assessment

The City of Orlando’s Northwest Neighborhood Center had not been renovated or received mechanical improvements within the past 7 years. Because of the building’s age, city leadership saw an opportunity to find necessary maintenance and to reduce operational costs while providing a healthier, ADA-compliant environment to staff and community members. A Facility Condition Assessment would find any essential improvements to assure compliance with Orlando’s Building Energy and Water Efficiency Strategy (BEWES) policy while estimating and documenting any costs.

Our collaborative team with neighborhood center representatives focused the assessment on areas of the building that required immediate repair or appeared to not meet code. After assessing the property, structure, and mechanical systems, ecoPreserve documented the need for immediate repair in lighting and electrical systems, window seals, and preventive maintenance of the roof. The comprehensive final report included recommendations and cost estimates to upgrade the center’s lighting from fluorescent to LED.

The City of Orlando now has thorough, engineer-approved documentation for repair and building systems improvements to its Northwest Neighborhood Center. In providing those, ecoPreserve has also recommended cost-effective environmental and workplace wellness improvements. The documentation can support ongoing initiatives to bring the facility beyond BEWES and code compliance.
