How it Works

Optimized Facility Planning Process

The Facility Benchmarking Tool uses facilitated decision making to determine preferred building qualities in alignment with business requirements.

  • One integrated design meeting
  • One data repository for facility decisions across a project’s lifecycle
  • Pre-vetted selection options based on three levels of building quality, cost and construction complexity
  • One source for facilities information and basis of design intent


The Facility Benchmarking Tool benchmarks the relationship between building quality and cost using the FBT scoring methodology. The Score / Cost Comparison Report illustrates the calculated score as compared to project cost.

Report Functions

The tool’s database technology efficiently stores and retrieves information providing on demand reports. Sample reports include:

Project Report
