National Park Service Comprehensive Condition Assessments

Grand Teton National Park is a part of the National Park Service (NPS) located in Wyoming, United States

The NPS enlisted Cardno’s support to review the facilities managed by concessioners at 26 of these National Parks and to estimate future maintenance costs to ensure an ongoing level of quality.

The National Park Service (NPS) cares for the more than 400 national parks in the United States, with the support of private companies who provide operational services under concessional contracts. 

Cardno undertook comprehensive Condition Assessment (CA) studies and audited the properties, completing a range of tasks including:

  • updating asset inventories
  • producing drawings and site plans
  • identifying and updating component inventories
  • conducting real property condition assessments
  • performing lifecycle analyses for component renewal
  • developing multi-year maintenance and repair plans/work plans
  • conducting accessibility surveys
  • conducting seismic risk surveys
  • conducting park-type specific surveys
  • developing cost estimates for improvements of concessioner facilities.

The condition assessment results in real property data and analysis, providing the NPS with a comprehensive and fact-based assessment of real property facilities to support the management of concession contracts. The assessment observations and analysis enable the NPS to better identify budgetary requirements and evaluate concessioner stewardship of park assets under their care and custody, as well as support concession prospectus development.

Cardno has conducted many Facility Condition Assessments for the National Park Service in most states throughout the United States.
