Capital Renewal (CR) is a web based planning tool managed and maintained by Sightlines, LLC designed to support institutions in documenting the backlog of deferred maintenance and in estimating the annual funding required for on–going capital renewal. The underlying design of the model was developed by the Pacific Partners Consulting Group as FRRM (Facilities Renewal Resource Model), and the assumptions were customized for The University of Texas System. The mode was acquired by Sightlines, LLC in 2011.
The model uses U.T. specific building information (e.g. building name, gross square feet and construction date), and a proprietary methodology based on sub-system life-cycles and replacement costs to estimate deferred maintenance and future capital repair needs.
The Capital Renewal model is designed to be maintained by each component institution with the capability of summarizing information at both the campus and system level. The model has a great deal of built–in flexibility to allow institutions to enter new data, customize reports, and even change the underlying assumptions.
The Capital Renewal model is password protected. Please contact your campus Physical Plant Director or the U.T. System Office of Facilities Planning and Construction for questions related to campus access and passwords.
