Generalist Review

A review of a facility, system or asset that is conducted by persons who are not specialists but instead have reasonable and appropriate general knowledge that affords the owner a report that is still meaningful.

For example:

  • An elevator is reviewed by a mechanical engineer rather than an elevator consultant.
  • A swimming pool system is reviewed by a mechanical engineer rather than a pool consultant
Depending on the objectives, a consulting team with a good balance of generalists and specialists is required for a facility condition assessment.

Generalists are sometimes used to reduce the costs for the consulting review, for initial review, or for non-critical systems.
