Yale University Portfolio

There were two major building programs at Yale University; the first after World War I, the second after World War II.  Buildings erected during both these periods were badly in need of maintenance -- over a billion dollars worth of deferred maintenance in areas such as elevators, electrical, security, plumbing, fire protection and the building exterior.  A nationally recognized construction firm identified and prioritized the needed maintenance and RPM Systems created a Microsoft Project-driven database application that planned and tracked the completion of deferred maintenance based on priority, with life safety issues such as fire protection having the highest priority.
