Building Condition Assessment and Cost Reduction Program




Calspan Corporation was seeking ways to reduce costs of building operations while improving services at their sites in Buffalo and Niagara Falls, NY.  

Engineered Facility Solutions was selected to perform a building condition assessment and

operations cost analysis for each property. The assessment included

building HVAC systems, electrical, plumbing and exterior  

systems such as roof, windows and brick and block facades.


EFS completed a series of site inspections for the 500,000 square

foot Buffalo site and the 125,000 square foot site in Niagara Falls.

The report included facility maintenance cost analysis, utility cost

analysis and review of building system conditions. A list of capital

projects were identified including digital photos of each

recommended project along with an estimated construction cost





EFS presented their findings that identified costs savings that would reduce Calspan's  costs of operations in the areas of energy utilization, contracted services and building operations. The plan included reinvestment of identified savings into capital projects that would increase the value of the physical asset and improve building systems. The program was approved and implemented in March, 2009. Savings from the program were immediate. HPS met their goals and objectives and provided to Calspan cost reductions and improved building maintenance services as identified in the Condition Assessment and Cost Analysis Report.


EFS is the third year of a multi-year program at Calspan Corporation. Energy reduction projects, building maintenance work order systems and capital improvement projects continue with documented savings for the Owner.
