In 2007, St. Vrain Valley School District retained Architecture Plus to perform an audit on all of their school facilities that were over five years old. This all-inclusive condition assessment was performed for classrooms, media centers, computer labs, administration areas, cafeterias/kitchens, gymnasiums/weight rooms, locker rooms/restrooms, auditoriums/band rooms, track and fields, concession stands, mechanical and electrical rooms, storage facilities, bus terminals, and maintenance facilities.
During the audits, Architecture Plus inventoried the following systems: site including landscaping, utilities, paving, and track/field; furnishings including equipment and bleachers; interior and exterior walls, doors, windows, ceilings, roofs and structural; fire and life safety; ADA issues; HVAC; plumbing and electrical.
At the completion of that initial report, Architecture Plus was asked to audit all of the district’s modular buildings. In 2008, the district retained Architecture Plus a third time to perform an audit on all of their remaining facilities. As of 2009, all of the district facilities have been audited and entered into their database to be reviewed and used by the maintenance and administrative staff. Architecture Plus updates this database every three years by performing yearly audits on one-third of their facilities.
“The information gathered from these audits was accurate and valuable in Bond Planning and Capital Projects. Colorado schools are fortunate to have a firm that is nationally recognized for their work in facility audits. I whole heartedly recommend Jim’s firm!” —Gerald Crumpton, Saint Vrain Valley School District (Longmont)
