Condition Scale
Also referred to as a "condition rating".

A method for ranking the relative condition of each asset or system with a building.

Alternative Schemes

Scale #1 - 3-Tiered
  • Good
  • Fair
  • Poor
Scale #2 - 5-Tiered
  • Excellent.  Only normal scheduled maintenance is required
  • Good.   Some minor repairs needed; functions okay
  • Fair.   More minor repairs required; mostly functional
  • Poor.  Significant repairs required; system not fully    functional for building use; does not meet all codes
  • Critical/Bad (Very Poor). Major repair or replacement required to restore function; system unsafe
  • Absent.  A system that does not exist in a facility
A condition scale provides a means of indexing the assets in a Facility Condition Assessment (FCA).
