Assessment/Inspection

Head Start Facility Assessment

SPAAN Tech provided management, technical, and condition assessment services for 250+ Daycare/Head Start Facilities located throughout Chicago.

The project required SPAAN Tech to develop a data collection application, utilizing a Pocket PC-based system and SQL Server database. The information collected was used to assist the Chicago Department of Children and Youth Services in their evaluation and budget projections for each facility and in justifying Federal Grant requests.

Condition Assessment of ADA and Life Safety for Senior Housing

SPAAN Tech conducted surveys of CHA non-residential facilities and residential units including single family residences, townhouses, multi-story residential facilities and common areas for compliance with UFAS 504 accessibility standards.

Corresponding condition reports for each unit were completed in an electronic format, which enabled the Chicago Housing Authority and other authorized users to quickly retrieve information on the existence and location of accessible areas within the inventory.

Life Safety Assessments

SPAAN Tech served on a team to perform on-site building surveys for all medical clinics and facilities in order to assess and identify areas of material non-compliance with regard to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 101, 2000 Edition, Life Safety Code.

The firm’s Conditions Assessment Report for each site included: supporting photographs, a description of suggested building modifications, and construction cost data related to the deficiency list.
