Construction and Facilities
The mission of the Construction and Facilities Management
Office is to provide functional leadership for all agency facility
engineering programs, including facility construction, maintenance, and real
estate with an emphasis on safeguarding the environment and providing
quality training areas and work environments.
The terms Sustainment, Restoration, and Modernization (SRM)
refers to operation, maintenance, repair, and construction of real property
regardless of appropriation. In brief, sustainment maintains facilities,
restoration improves facilities back to their current standards and
modernization improves facilities to new standards.
SRM is relatively new terminology resulting from a federal government
initiative to recognize that facilities have a definitive life cycle and
naturally degrade over time. By combining the appropriate level of
maintenance while restoring to keep facilitiesí major building systems up to
date with current standards and using new construction to modernize in an
effort to prevent functional obsolescence, the full life cycle of a facility
can be achieved. The SRM construct is a significant philosophical departure
from the previous real property maintenance mindset that isolated
maintenance and repair efforts from new construction objectives. SRM is
designed to bring these two important components together in a program that
ensures the longest life and the best possible performance from a facility
for the least investment.
