“Goose Creek demonstrates how smart building controls and software can streamline energy efficiency, sustainability, and O&M practices,” said
In addition to design innovation, GCCC was commended for its progressive approach to operations and maintenance. The facility established a proactive structure while under construction, and chose Bigfoot CMMS to set up a preventive maintenance schedule and keep track of its 1,700 pieces of equipment, safety tasks, operations manuals, and more. A proactive maintenance program also made it possible for GCCC to hire inmates to work alongside its staff in order to learn new skills while serving time.
“It is my goal to demonstrate the effectiveness of Bigfoot CMMS and try to make it the standard maintenance solution for all DOC Facilities in Alaska,” said
“The project is estimated to save GCCC at least 20 percent of normal maintenance costs due to more accurate scheduling, and less downtime and failures.”
Now in its 8th year, the America’s Best Buildings of the Year (ABBY) Awards highlight projects that set a new benchmark for facility managers to emulate.
Submitted profiles were evaluated by the BUILDINGS editorial staff for the latest innovations in areas such as energy efficiency, sustainability, forward-looking design, purposeful renovation, and streamlined operations.
