Facility Operations Assessment

Our facility operations assessment is the recommended starting place to fully understand your current processes and structures. We take into account all of your buildings and grounds to review infrastructure, electrical systems, ventilation systems, mechanical systems, security systems, amount of space related to district needs and more. We then create a plan for strategic improvements.


Financial planning is critical for well-kept, safe spaces for students and staff. Partner with CESO to create a buildings and grounds budget that maximizes all resources while also taking into account regular maintenance and upkeep as well as planning for any future expansions or remodels as district needs change. Our team brings decades of both facilities and finance experience to the table for a holistic approach.

5-Year & 10-Year Plans

Ensure your district has well-kept, best-sized spaces to serve its students and staff both now and in the future. Leverage CESO to develop and manage strategic plans for your buildings and grounds - whether they are 5-year, 10-year or somewhere in between. We combine data and multiple perspectives to analyze the true current and future needs of your district. Then, we take into account available resources, equipment life-cycles and facility upkeep to create a sustainable, feasible plan.

Safety & Security

In addition to providing an analysis of your current safety and security equipment, processes and structures, we can also install fully integrated cloud-based security systems and 911inform technology to keep your students and staff safer.

Facilities Director Staffing

Partner with CESO for facilities executive and director-level support for short or long-term needs. With years of experience, our team can step in to manage your buildings and grounds team, resource planning, vendor management, disaster recovery planning, training, billing, budgeting, safety, expansion or remodel planning and more.

Facilities Support Staffing

From safety and security managers to facilities coordinators, the team at CESO can provide day-to-day buildings and grounds support by managing teams, maintenance schedules, vendor contracts and more.

Facility Operations Assessment

If you're not sure where to start, begin with our Facility Operations Assessment. We provide a comprehensive review of your current processes and structures, and then create a completely customized action plan to keep what works and replace what doesn’t. We ensure your plan is actionable by prioritizing it into three categories: Do Now, Do Soon, Do Later.

Let us do the implementation work for you, or we can put the plan into your team’s capable hands. Either way (or a blend of both), you can count on a course of action and timeline that are tailored to your team and district needs.

The assessment analyzes the four categories we believe are most important for successful buildings and grounds care including:

  • Infrastructure Systems
  • Budgeting
  • Staffing
  • Proactive Practices

Get Started

Do Now

High impact, minimal effort. The tasks prioritized in Do Now can often be completed by your team, with limited support. Think of it as having all the tools in place, you just need a hand prioritizing, planning or making a conscious effort to focus on them. This stage is often also where we determine pieces to be implemented in Do Soon.

Do Soon

High impact, medium effort. These action items build momentum, accelerating improvement and increasing efficiency. They’re often project-based and may require an investment. Do Soon typically impacts the current or upcoming year, but the timeline is ultimately up for your team to decide.

Do Later

High impact, high effort. We make sure you’re set up for sustainable, long-term success. Think of these items as your ideal state, with Do Now and Do Soon helping lay its groundwork. Do Later can also include an analysis of results, longer-term planning, and higher levels of organizational change that may require partnership support.
