FSG Energy Plan Incorporated Into Educational Facility Master Plan

1. EDUCATIONAL ADEQUACY EVALUATION: Examine each building and assess the degree to which the learning facility adequately supports the district educational program and educational delivery methods.

2. BUILDING CONDITION: Evaluate the physical condition of the educational buildings. Perform an energy study. Civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical disciplines will be assessed. ADA (American Disabilities Act ) compliance, life cycle cost comparisons, site issues, and health and safety concerns are to be assessed and prioritized.

3. EDUCATIONAL SUITABILITY: determine the suitability of square footage usage as it relates to increasing or decreasing population. Keeping the Districts Mission and Values as guiding standards.

Long Range Planning

Working closely with staff and key decision makers in the school district FSG will develop or update the Mechanical and Electrical portion of a long-range facility plan. The plan will identify needs for new space as well as for modernization or renovation of existing facilities. It will rank capital priorities, establish realistic budget estimates and set a timetable for project execution over a number of years. A Long range plan provides a comprehensive, living document that both establishes quantitative and qualitative goals.
