Alexandria City Public Schools, Targeted Facility Condition Assessments
Alexandria City Public Schools encountered serious issues when undertaking renovations during one of their schools. Many issues were discovered during the renovation project such as water infiltration and mold growth. ACPS decided they needed to take a different approach to the future targeted condition assessments. For this reason, Henry Adams was selected to conduct a round of condition assessments. ACPS knew they could count on Henry Adams due to their past working relationship on multiple projects with critical and challenging schedules.
The purpose of this assessment was to gather detailed information on poorly performing facilities and develop a targeted facility condition assessment report covering six facilities, 680,000 SF total. This includes Cora Kelly Elementary School, George Mason Elementary School, Matthew Maury Elementary School, George Washington Middle School, the ACPS Transportation Facility, and Francis C. Hammond Middle School.
In the comprehensive assessment, Henry Adams clearly identified whether the condition of the facilities was clearly critical, potentially crucial, necessary, or recommended with cost estimates. Henry Adams focused on the buildings’ exterior systems, interior construction, interior finishes, health, fire, and life safety systems, handicap accessibility, HVAC units and related pipework thermal insulation, plumbing, electrical and service distribution, fire suppression, special electrical systems, emergency power, telecommunications, special construction, vertical transportation, and site surface structures and utilities.
