In the session, attendees will learn why it is important for executives and board members to initiate and execute strategic capital replacement planning as buildings and campuses age to remain positioned for the future and stay competitive in the marketplace. They will gain an understanding of the strategic implications of long-term capital planning as it relates to building lifecycles versus funding depreciation. Doyen will also illustrate different methodologies for long-term capital replacement planning including integrated facility assessments to evaluate future capital needs.
