AEMS provides roof designs for each roofing system or can identify new overall design options to establish consistent roof materials on all roofs in-network. Consistent systems provide improved system performance and minimize future repairs and maintenance costs.

The first step for any program would be to develop an inventory and condition assessment of each roof. Inventory and condition assessments are completed by AEMS professionals that have years of experience on similar projects. AEMS also works with the client to collect and help explain the critical information required to assist in developing the required annual plan. AEMS works with the client in completion of the tasks with accurate information so that together, we can establish credible decisions in the latter stages of an Asset Management Planning and in developing the Capital Project Plan.

Step 1 – Inventory and Inspection
  • Inventory
    • Collect original drawings, previous assessment reports, and repair history
    • Age of all roofs in system
    • Warranty period of each roof
    • Critical factors for each facility
  • Inspection
    • Work with client to identify existing conditions of all roofs
    • Review existing reports to identify current condition
    • Complete site reviews
    • Provide new condition rating of each roof or system roofs
    • Review previous leaks and repairs
Step 2 – Develop Repair Parameters
  • Define and Prioritize Scopes of Work for Repairs for Roof Systems
    • Restoration:
      • Typical coating or standard manufacturers to select for system
      • Determine typical new life expectancy for system
      • Determine warranty provided
      • Identify when to use restoration
      • Prioritize roofs to receive restoration or extend life before replacing roof
    • Retrofit:
      • Installing a 2nd roof over the existing
      • Typical manufacturers to select for system
      • Determine typical new life expectancy for system
      • Ensure warranty provided
      • Identify when to use
      • Prioritize roofs to receive retrofit or extend life before replacing roof
    • Replacement:
      • New roof installed with old roofing material removed
      • Typical manufacturers to select for system
      • Determine typical new life expectancy for system
      • Full warranty provided
      • Identify when to use or priority roofs to receive replacement
Step 3 – Develop Individual Site or System Wide Repair Program
  • Define client attributes and data structure for repair program
  • Develop program goals and client specific attributes
  • Do not let asset fall below a minimum condition
  • Provide cost effective management with priority of repairs and available funding
  • Provide value engineering for some roofs with client’s input
  • Extended life at lowest or appropriate cost
  • Monitor network overall approach and backlog maintenance
  • Define rehabilitation costs that can vary by:
    • Difficulty of work
    • Sensitivity of location
    • Customer specific requirements
    • Escalation factors
    • Identify the Assets
    • Perform network future asset inspections
Step 4 – Provide detail design repair plans for implementation
