Facility Condition Assessment – Pedernales Electric Cooperative
Johnson City, Texas
LAN performed facility condition assessments of properties owned and operated by the Pedernales Electric Cooperative, Inc. (PEC). As part of our work, LAN provided a facility assessment team of knowledgeable and detail oriented architects and engineers who performed several aspects of study related to PEC facilities. The assessment work performed included a comprehensive inventory of the PEC’s facilities and incorporated architectural systems, mechanical/electrical/plumbing systems, accessibility, staff safety, and site assessment.
LAN also provided a fire, life, and safety code review, and an energy efficiency best practices report. As the largest distribution electric cooperative in the nation — one that covers 8,100 square miles and serves more than 248,000 meters in twenty-four counties in Texas, PEC required a software solution to assist in the day-to-day management and capital planning efforts associated with their facilities. As part of the facility condition assessment, LAN provided a populated facility condition assessment database that encompassed inventory and condition related data of PEC’s building systems. The database included detailed information collected during on-site assessment work. Noted deficiencies were paired with photographic evidence and levels of prioritization based on PEC’s requests. LAN used the software to develop location-specific cost estimates based on industry-leading RS Means cost information data for the building systems and deficiencies found at each of PEC’s locations.
LAN’s effort provided a critical piece in the overall program aimed to provide a “roadmap” for facilities planning as PEC continues to grow.
