Share Article

University of Rochester will share the winning approach that led to increased funding and wider recognition.

VFA, Inc., the leading provider of end-to-end solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management, today announced that it will host a complimentary webinar led by Paul Wurster, Assistant Director of Facilities at the University of Rochester, on how developing a positive approach to facilities capital planning gained more widespread recognition that facilities needs are an integral part of strategic planning, and ultimately led to needed funding.

Competing demands and scarce resources have forced many colleges and universities to look beyond reactive measures and static facility data and formulate a long-term perspective on capital planning. Integrated assessment strategies and improved reporting capabilities are enabling communication between senior facilities staff and program administrators, resulting in an understanding of how facilities and program requirements are linked and must be addressed simultaneously.

During this 45-minute webinar, attendees will learn how:

  •     Implementing a holistic and integrated facility assessment program has helped the University to build an effective capital renewal plan
  •     The University overcame the challenges they faced in managing the maintenance and renewal of their facilities
  •     The capital budgeting and planning process has changed as a result of having a central repository of updated facilities data.
