Hakim, Hossein.


The goal of our project was to assist the Department of Public Works in Quincy, Massachusetts in creating a more efficient approach for the maintenance of the public schools. General and detailed evaluations were developed to assess the conditions of the nineteen schools, a bus depot, and a stadium. Each building received a general evaluation, and detailed evaluations were performed on Parker and Wollaston Elementary Schools. A database and ranking system were created to organize the data and identify the more serious maintenance issues. Overall, the result was an efficient, structured, electronic maintenance system.
