Nelson Engineering assists clients in the management of large portfolios of capital assets so that budgets for repairs, maintenance, replacements and improvements are used as efficiently as possible. We perform Facility Condition Assessments (FCA) that provide the basic data and reports used by stakeholders. We translate deficiencies identified during FCAs into repair orders and capital projects. We use various Capital Asset Planning (CAP) tools, some commercial and one we developed, which allow work prioritization based on factors such as safety, health and environmental impacts, facility mission, security and condition index. We assess maintenance and repair costs and their impact on capital asset useful life, develop lifecycle cost estimates and evaluate sustainability. We use CAP tools and the data we develop to provide customers with short term (one year) and long term (five to ten year) capital plans that they use for budgeting and other planning purposes.
