FTC&H has been delivering facility solutions for over 50 years. Our diverse team of over 360 professionals including architects, engineers, constructors, and scientists have developed FacilityWISE, a program to reduce project costs through more efficient design solutions. The FacilityWISE program leads to significant reductions in construction costs, better operational efficiency, and simpler design and construction solutions.
25-30% Construction Cost Savings
FTC&H has proven FacilityWISE by successfully delivering cost reduction solutions for major national clients. In some cases, implemented solutions have enhanced design while reducing project costs by more than 25%! These cost savings factored across a prototype rollout program result in millions of dollar savings each year.
Professional Team/Professional Results
FacilityWISE utilizes a multi-discipline team of talented senior-level architects, engineers, and constructors focused on uncovering hundreds of opportunities to lower construction and operational costs. By teaming with key client leadership, the FacilityWISE team is able to develop a common understanding, test ideas, and create ownership of the opportunities selected.
All elements relating to the design and construction of a facility are thoroughly analyzed including planning, architectural components, and engineering systems (HVAC, plumbing, lighting, electrical, utilities, and civil). In addition, operational efficiency and methods for procurement of construction services and building components are investigated to identify potential savings.
Real savings solutions are discovered, analyzed, and documented ready for implementation within weeks of the start of the FacilityWISE process. Our team utilizes a real time proprietary database system to track and report cost reduction and design change ideas. This innovative database allows us to keep track of the cost, implications, and decision status of every idea. Weekly updates can be provided to a designated client contact.
The following is a list of clients who have successfully implemented the FacilityWISE process.
