Proactive Facility Assessment with FACILITATE

You know those home improvement shows where they buy a run-down house for a low price and fix it up? Then, during demolition they discover problem after problem. Homeowners would love a way to find these issues beforehand.


Schemmer developed a proprietary facility assessment software program called FACILITATE. This program enables our team to input data on-site and in real time, quickly compiling the information for analysis and reporting. Facilitate is a cloud-based program that can be shared with clients and integrated with their facility management software.

What is Facilitate Schemmer

Evaluating Your Building's Conditions with FACILITATE

Schemmer's program FACILITATE provides our clients with:

  • An overview of their buildings
  • A summary of building and property statistics
  • A comparison to other similar building types' performances
  • A roadmap for the future to achieve an ideal outcome
  • An itemized capital expenditure plan for the next 15 years of maintenance
  • Options for GPS locations of deferred maintenance items to assist with efficient vendor maintenance

FACILITATE prepares an easy-to-use report that provides detailed information on a building's:

  • Condition
  • Deficiencies
  • Life safety issues
  • Recommended corrections, categorized by immediate, short term or long-term need

It also provides cost estimates and assigns priorities for improvements or deferred maintenance. This in-depth report allows our clients to evaluate the possibilities of renovation, demolition, disposal or purchase of their buildings.

Best of all, Facilitate can be customized for each project and client. We work with our programmers to enhance Facilitate each year to ensure it is flexible and current.
