This project provides for a comprehensive lifecycle replacement program to protect the County's investment in facilities and to sustain efficient and reliable facility operation. The project is targeted at slowing the deterioration of key facility and site components based on an inventory of their age and condition. The project includes: mechanical/plumbing equipment; lighting system replacement not covered under the Energy Conservation CIP program; and reconstruction of sidewalks and curbs adjacent to County facilities. The scope of this project parallels approved CIP projects of Montgomery County Public Schools, Montgomery College, and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.

Cost Change

Increase is due to the addition of FY19 and FY20 to this ongoing project and is partially offset by the capitalization of prior expenditures. Increase is also related to additional FY15 work planned for Strathmore Mansion and work related to supporting improvements at the eight facilities participating in the Energy Systems Modernization project in FY14 and FY15.


The County currently has a significant backlog of facility and site components that result from facility age and past deferrals of deficiencies. Various components are outdated, inefficient, and costly to repair. The replacement of components significantly extends the useful life of County facilities. In FY05, FY06 and FY07, the County engaged a consultant to conduct a comprehensive facility condition assessment survey of 73 County facilities, or approximately 30 percent of the County's facility inventory. Based upon the age and condition of each component and industry-accepted component lifetimes, a priority listing of component replacement was developed. The results of the facility condition assessment of 73 County facilities have been used to prioritize the six-year program.


Scheduled replacements:

FY15: Strathmore Mansion, Pre-Release Center, Brook Grove Daycare, One Lawrence Court, Riley Group Home, Avery Road Back House, 1301 Piccard Dr.

FY16: Layhill Group Home, Judith Resnick Daycare Center, Waring Station Daycare, Damascus Library


Expenditures will continue indefinitely.
