Facility reference manuals are used by two groups of facility decision makers.

Identify Long-term M&R Costs

The first group has a common need to know the long-term M&R costs of specific buildings. This group consists of analysts, developers, architects, bankers, investors, and others who must account for M&R costs that, over a 50-year building lifetime, can easily exceed the costs of construction.

Refine Facility Maintenance Budgets

The second audience consists of facility managers and all those responsible for estimating and justifying facility maintenance budgets. Acutely aware of immediate needs, this group often does not put funding requests in a larger context: How much does funding need to rise just to keep up with inflation? What is the appropriate funding level for a facility with an inventory of particular building types? Such information provides a benchmark, a point of reference, for demonstrating M&R requirements.

Whitestone Facility Maintenance And Repair Cost Reference

The 14th annual Whitestone Facility Maintenance And Repair Cost Reference 2009-2010 provides detailed maintenance and repair costs for 72 building types in all major U.S. and Canadian areas. Maintenance and Repair data is included for over 1,000 building components, over 30 trades, and more than 3,000 maintenance tasks.

Whitestone Facility Operations Cost Reference

The third annual Whitestone Facility Operations Cost Reference 2009-2010 profiles operations cost for 72 building and utility types in all major U.S. and Canadian areas. Alternative levels of service and costs are estimated for
  • custodial
  • energy
  • grounds
  • management
  • pest control
  • refuse
  • road clearance
  • security
  • telecommunications
  • water & sewer

The cost reference guides deliver a comprehensive view of a building's operations and maintenance cost using the same techniques that Whitestone applies for its largest services clients.

Whitestone Research specializes in cost forecasting, applied policy research and econometric modeling for large facilities.
