The objectives of facility management are changing. In many cases, changing operational directives or facility closures are dramatically modifying the current and future use of facilities. These changes can often be the catalyst for environmental investigation, possible remediation, equipment removal, and adaptive reuse. This paper presents an approach for investigating the current environmental conditions of a facility, taking an inventory of buildings and equipment, and evaluating the appropriate response actions for preparing the facility for its intended future reuse. Planned actions may include a combination of alternatives from environmental remediation and equipment dismantling, to total facility demolition. The suggested approach will be presented in a step by step outline and supplemented with case studies of previous projects performed by Roy F. Weston, Inc. (WESTON) to provide real world perspective.
