Facility Condition Indexing

The Facility Condition Index (FCI) is a standard facility management benchmark that is used to objectively assess the current and projected condition of a building asset. By definition, the FCI is defined as the ratio of current year required renewal cost to current building replacement value. Building condition is often defined in terms of the FCI as follows:(Good) 0 to 5 percent FCI,(Fair) 5 to 10 percent FCI (Poor) 10 to 30 percent FCI, (Critical) greater than 30 percent FCI. The purpose of the FCI is to provide a means for objective comparison of facility or building conditions as well as allowing senior decision makers to understand building renewal funding needs and comparisons.
