Building Quality Evaluation Procedurals Manual.
South Carolina Commission on Higher Education, Columbia.
Beginning in Fall, 1974, the Federal Higher Education Information Survey (HEGIS) Inventory of College and University Physical Facilities, submitted by each postsecondary educational institution, included a requirement to report on the condition of the facilities. This requirement emphasized the importance of developing guidelines for institutions in determining the need for renovation and modernization. This manual sets forth a method for systematically inspecting building components and for assigning points to them based on comparison with components in a new or satisfactorily remodeled facility. The total point value of all components can be translated into a HEGIS facility condition category. The aggregated results for all facilities at an institution will meet the requirements of the HEGIS Report while the individual building evaluations will provide a basis for determining priorities for renovation among buildings.
