The goal of this project was to help the City of Boston develop a building inventory to track investment needs and coordinate upgrading projects. We assessed the usefulness of an asset management system and determined the main variables of the buildings that should be included in it. We tracked energy consumption and capital investment data on our sample of branch libraries that were recently upgraded. Based on our analysis of this data, we also proposed several feasible recommendations for alterations to their system maintenance and building upgrades in order to maximize energy efficiency and sustainability.
