Introducing CapitalForecastDirect

In the life of a school, no project and no budget year are the same.

CapitalForecastDirect is a facilities forecasting tool for schools with the power to predict future projects and prioritize current ones—because there’s a lot more at stake than a building or a budget.

Get Started

You know better than anyone: Our school buildings and their equipment won’t last forever.

Every part will need repair, whether it’s today or in 20 years, and whether or not you have the budget.

You spend your day fixing facilities problems, and you need to forecast large ones that will inevitably come.

CapitalForecastDirect gives you the visibility and the credibility to act with confidence.

THREE PATHS TO A 30-year forecast

  1. Answer three simple questions

    In just three questions, you can start building your life cycle:
    • Age of your building?
    • Square footage?
    • Building type?
    From there you can easily customize the model based on your school and your equipment.
  2. Input your existing assessment

    If you already have an assessment, CapitalForecastDirect makes it easy to upload your data to bring your plan to life.
  3. Input the equipment you track

    You may already track life cycles of your equipment. Easily upload this data so you can build a complete picture of your school and a plan going forward.
