Project Description

Since 2011, SB Thomas & Associates has been conducting the following condition assessment services for our clients who include non-profits, government agencies, facility managers, higher education, and multi-family housing providers:

  • Property Condition Assessments (PCAs)
  • Facility Condition Assessments (FCAs)
  • Green Physical Needs Assessments (GPNA)
  • Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) PCA

On each condition assessment project, SBTA provides on-site assessment services to review the condition and age of a facility’s major components and systems, prepare a report documenting the assessment and then provides planning tools to help the client plan for its capital improvement needs over a specified period.

These assessments involve reviewing the sites, building exteriors, building interior areas, restrooms, mechanical spaces and equipment, roofs and a sampling of office or apartment spaces, whichever is applicable.  At the beginning, it is important to understand the client’s intended use of the information collected as part of the FCA/PCA, whether it be a tool for capital planning or an inventory of the facility’s major building equipment including age and condition.

SB Thomas & Associates, Inc. has completed facility and/or property condition assessments at various buildings at Ohio University, at the Allegheny Campus buildings including Byers Hall, Milton Hall, and the KLM Science Building for the Community College of Allegheny County as well as thousands of residential units for public housing authorities across the country including Allegheny County Housing Authority (PA), Mercer County Housing Authority (PA), El Paso Housing Authority (TX), Newark Housing Authority (NJ), Trenton Housing Authority (NJ), Winder Housing Authority (GA), Harrisburg Housing Authority (PA), Santa Fe Housing Authority (NM), Lakeland Housing Authority (FL), Altoona Housing Authority (PA), Shreveport Housing Authority (LA), Cincinnati Housing Authority (OH), Dearborn Housing Authority (MI),  Cuyahoga Metro Housing Authority (OH), Lucas Metro Housing Authority, and many more.
