Join us for this free opportunity to connect, learn, grow, and share.
Wednesday, February 12th
Track 1:Assessor Boot Camp
The intended audience understands the foundations of BUILDER and wants to sharpen field assessment skills. Topics will include high-level QA approaches and a system-by-system breakdown of the areas most challenging for consistent sectioning and direct rating scale. Topics include:
- Assessment Tools (BRED)
- Custom Reports for Data Quality
- System Overviews
Track 2:Program Management Sustainment Strategies
With the initial implementation scaling down, BUILDER is moving to a sustainment model where leadership must establish how to ensure the data is current and valuable. Planning topics include:
- Work Item Remediation
- In-House vs Contracted Teams for Reassessment (BRED)
- Desktop Update Strategies
- New Construction and Removed Facilities
- Refinement of Work Configuration Standards
- Staff Training and Development Options
Track 1:Assessor Boot Camp (continued)

Optimizing BUILDER Data to Your Audience
UNIFORMAT Scope Inclusion
Track 1:1:00-4:30 System Admin/BUILDER Hosting
This session will focus on the areas of BUILDER typically only used by system administrators. This will include what is available through the UI for user management and administration. Other highlights will include the configuration tables (timeout settings, etc.), frequent problem areas during a deployment, cloud hosting system requirements, and configuration considerations. An industry-suggested configuration will be showcased.
Track 2:1:00-2:00 Knowledge-Based Inspection Workshop
Many have asked how often a BUILDER assessment is required. Often people will leverage policy that requires 5-year inspections. In the context of BUILDER, does that mean all sections need to be inspected, one section, or maybe a smart subset? This workshop will identify how to set Knowledge-Based Inspection parameters to generate a list of sections BUILDER suggests for inspections.2:00-3:00 Metrics Deep Dive (BCI vs FCI)
This session will focus on the delivery of a deeper understanding behind the two most basic metrics of BUILDER. The pure condition of a facility as a metric for risk, BCI, the more financial metric that shows work as a proportion of building value. A slide deck will be provided to everyone with script.3:15-4:30 Quantify Risk (MDI & CII)
Federal facility organizations are calling on finances to be directed to the highest risk. This session will talk to those areas of BUILDER most connected to mission risk and how to leverage that for work identification and prioritization.

Cost/Design Life Catalog
Field Assessment Innovations
CMMS Integration (Closing the Loop)
This session will showcase key PowerBI business analytics report capabilities to drive action. Breakout session participants will be able to log in directly to a PowerBI server and manipulate reports.1:00-2:30 Scenarios + FCI “POM” Planning
Earlier versions of BUILDER could use funding sources to establish a limit of work completion in each year. The end result would be FCI values for each facility. With BUILDER 3.5.3, CERL introduced a feature to allow users to flip the configuration. Now FCI targets can be set to establish funding required to meet those targets. This breakout session will train users on how to set up, run, and report on this new feature.
