Key Takeaways from APPA: Leadership in Educational Facilities

After a great weekend in DC at this year's APPA conference, we're excited and inspired by the dedication and achievements of so many leaders in the educational facilities arena. Here we discuss the most exciting takeaways from the event.

1. Total Cost of Ownership

It's essential that the educational facility manager continually seek out inventive ways to reduce operating expenses while improving occupant efficiency. Through a transparent, efficient, and holistic approach to Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) with the help of Building Information Modeling (BIM), it is possible to provide comprehensive life cycle data about all your assets. This includes land parcels, facilities, structures, infrastructure systems, and other equipment that require capital investments.

With the help of capital investment software, implementing the principles of TCO will ensure that you can schedule essential repairs and replacements of physical assets throughout the fiscal year, allowing you to maintain your short-term and long-term budgetary needs.

2. Thermographic

An essential topic among experts at APPA was the importance of using thermographic technology to monitor building envelopes and swiftly detect any deficiencies. It's why we offer it on our platform!
