Strong asset management is essential for building stronger communities, from buildings and roads to wastewater.
Municipalities of all sizes require instruments and tools to help them make logical decisions that promote long-term asset management. This will help build an improved, safer, and more sustainable future for all.
With support from MAMP, the Town of Quispamsis will study and assess the condition ofpark and assets in the town.
The study will provide the town with an asset inventory data standard forsites, a condition assessment program, replacement cost estimating, useful life estimating, and criticality rating guidelines.
Through MAMP’s funding, the City of Edmundston will also collect data on the electrical distribution network assets present in the city and the Madawaska Maliseetand store and manage the asset information digitally with spatial modeling in an Enterprise-GIS system. This modeling will help the city improve the management of the electrical distribution network.
Another project that will also take place with the help of MAMP is the complete condition assessments on the following city-owned buildings in the City of Miramichi: police station, city hall mechanical system, Miratech mechanical system, Miramichi Civic Centre roof, Lord Beaverbrook Arena roof, and Loggieville sewer lagoon.
