Abstract: The BUILDER™ Sustainment Management System (SMS) is a life-cycle asset management software application developed by the Engineer Re-search and Development Center-Construction Engineering Research Laboratory. The Department of Defense (DoD) uses BUILDER SMS to conduct facility condition assessments, identify work requirements, and report on facility conditions. In this way, it provides a consistent baseline for condition assessment across all DoD services and locations. The BUILDER system generates a multi-year work plan with recommenda-tions for component-level repair/replacement activities that not only assists current year tactical-level facility planning, but it also aids long-range facility investment strategic planning. To accurately and consistently measure facility conditions, a standardized inspection process is necessary. This manual describes the procedures for performing Condition Survey Inspections for building-related component infrastructure when using the BUILDER SMS. The resulting condition surveys, while they are not detailed engineering assessments or specialized inspections, do satisfy the requirements necessary for routine building management activities including the long-range budgeting and the sustainment, restoration, and modernization (SRM) program planning needed to keep DoD facilities in good working order.
