Giving Your Buildings a Performance Checkup: Lessons Learned from Brock University
Presentation on September 19, 1-2pm
IMAGINE a world where your asset management plans are based on consistent and defensible data.
IMAGINE there was a way you could have all the data you need to make informed decisions, right at your fingertips.
IMAGINE not being stressed that your organization is underfunded and unequipped to deal with the politics and pressures when it comes to capital planning.
IMAGINE knowing that your high-performance facility management program is minimizing the impact your buildings and assets have on the world around you.
IMAGINE having the capability to make better business decisions. We want to help you make this your reality.
IMAGINE your organization’s buildings and assets just being...
Traditional Asset Management has been executed through silos within organizations, with each department responsible for its own asset type (buildings, roads, water/wastewater, etc.) or a specific discipline associated with an asset and has focused on short term vs. long term goals. Based on our experience, this approach results in lost opportunity for asset and financial optimization.
We believe that by collaborating with all stakeholders, an integrated strategy will result in a more efficient and effective allocation of capital dollars, while leveraging assets towards the overall goals of our client.

For years the York Facilities Management Team recognized that it needed to increase its teams’ focus on Preventative Maintenance (PM) to reduce the costs and disruption associated with its Demand Maintenance needs. However, numerous internal false starts over the years were generally the result of a lack of capacity to build the initial momentum required to develop a sophisticated program. Finally in 2018, with support from its Board, York had the approved resources to partner with Roth IAMS to develop its PM program.
As part of their Campus Capital Plan, Wilfrid Laurier University (Laurier) wanted to develop an Asset Management Plan (AMP) that addressed its buildings portfolio, consisting of 3.3 M sq.ft. across two campuses as well as the surface and subsurface infrastructure on both campus locations.
To meet the Government of Ontario’s vision for a Barrier-free Accessible Ontario by 2025, and the Durham College (College) commitment to provide equal access for their students and staff, the College embarked on a comprehensive analysis of the barrier-free accessibility needs at each of their facilities, located at their Durham and Whitby campuses. With the above in mind, the College retained Roth IAMS to undertake a comprehensive barrier-free accessibility assessment (BAA) of their facilities.
Roth IAMS was selected as the prime consultant by the University to provide FCAs as part of a multi-phase project. Phases 1 and 2 included assessments of 32 buildings (3.47 million square feet). The purpose of the FCAs is to update the University’s condition data for its campus to support more efficient and effective on-going capital planning. Roth IAMS staff used the University’s AVS tool to provide the FCA data, which is then uploaded into its Total Capital Planning Solution (TCPS) database.
Following our successful project with the University of Saskatchewan, Roth IAMS was awarded a separate contract with the University of Regina (U of R), following a similar scope of work.Roth IAMS is providing BCAs for all on-campus buildings as well as a detailed Infrastructure Condition Assessment (ICA) for the surface and subsurface infrastructure across the campus.
