Track: Architecture, Engineering, and Construction
Authors: Brendan Pauls
Asset management plans can be overwhelming for many municipalities. When presented with the annual investments required to sustain their infrastructure, cities are often faced with a large deficit.
Understanding infrastructure risk of failure assists in prioritizing capital projects to addresses the community's true needs. This presentation discusses how GIS was used (specifically model builder) to create an automated risk assessment tool to assist in both quantifying and prioritizing risk.
