Take a Programmatic Approach to Healthcare Building Envelope Asset Management
In a setting focused on health and healing, there’s no room for error when it comes to keeping your facilities maintained and high performing. Technical Assurance is your partner in total building envelope asset management, which means we’re not just managing your facility assets, we work alongside you as your organizer and advocate to do what’s best.
You can have peace of mind knowing you’re working with a partner that has strong goals in mind for you:

When Poor Facility Management is Catastrophic to Your Patients and Providers
The Joint Commission’s focus starting in 2021 is to “continue on the journey to better patient care with zero harm,” and the Technical Assurance team fully adopts that mindset when working in a healthcare setting. We have extensive experience partnering with hospitals, providing our teams with first-hand knowledge of the unique challenges that critical facilities face and how to best identify and solve issues.
Not only do we help solve immediate problems as they arise, but we also work with hospitals to proactively manage the life cycle of their building envelope assets. By investing in annual repairs and preventative maintenance, our approach will allow you to extend time between capital renewals and drive actual cost savings to your facility spend plans.
Let Your Budget Plan Tell a Story
For facility managers, it can sometimes feel like you’re not on the same page as the administrative/financial leaders within your organization. We help bridge the divide between facility managers and financial leaders through the creation of a comprehensive facility asset management plan that uses the language of Strategic Stewardship. This synergistic language is based on engineered, scientific and financial metrics combined with business goals, objectives and core values that connect the strategic facility plan, facility master plan and tactical plans.
Pivot Your Focus to Reduce Your SpendWe work with clients to help them view their buildings as a business investment. When our multi-state healthcare client first came to us, their run-to-failure model of managing their portfolio was going to cost them nearly $40 million over the next 10 years. After working with them to financially analyze their building assets, we developed a management program that will save them over $4 million over the next 10 years.

Streamlined Building System Management Technology
Manage building system inventory, condition assessments and ongoing system data within one central location—the ON-PNT® Enterprise Building System Management solution. When dealing with multiple hospital campuses spanning a large geographic area, having all facility data collected in one central location at the touch of a finger or click of your mouse is invaluable.
- We start each partnership with a condition assessment to establish a baseline.
- The collected data is put into ON-PNT® along with historical system data, deficiencies, leaks, as-built information and other relevant system data.
- The goal of the assessment is to establish a condition index baseline of exterior building systems in order to understand how to prioritize repair and replacement projects over the next one, three, five and 10 years.
- This understanding allows us to craft a life cycle management program that includes financial planning and goals, repair and capital projects, preventative maintenance and warranty management.
