Foundation provides reliable and justifiable renewal and replacement plans for capital project executives.

The Foundation software platform enables deficiency-based physical asset renewal and replacement management for organizations with multiple buildings and sites. This approach delivered long term success for our clients on over $50 billion in building and infrastructure capital plans.

Foundation produces multi-year project plans based on reliable pre-scope budgets generated from observed deficiencies and modeled future needs.

With Foundation’s forecast, analysts and planners can jump forward and backward in time to understand needs, plan progress and spend at any point. Foundation scenario tools help analysts and planners evaluate plan alternatives. And at any point in time, Foundation can zoom in to higher detail or zoom out for system, building, site, city summaries.
