Providing much needed maintenance services to new and pre-existing buildings takes a critical responsibility off companies, so they can focus on their core business.
Designing and building a facility with an eye for what it will take to maintain it enhances the overall value proposition of the project. RUSH Facilities President, Bob Dillow, joined the RUSH Family of Companies to do just that.
Dillow enjoyed a 32-year Navy career that included 30+ years of managing repairs and operations on Nuclear Submarines, Cruisers, Aircraft Carriers, and Support Facilities. The move he made to facilities management outside of the military was the next logical step. When asked to reflect on his career, Dillow shared, “My entire adult life I have been responsible for making sure whatever organization I am part of can fulfill its function and meet its goals. It has varied from making sure ships could get underway, to a hospital being able to serve its patients’ needs, and now making sure that the various space programs here in Florida have operational facilities to support their missions in space.”
Over the years, RUSH has learned that working with a client to design a building or renovate an area to serve their needs, not only today, but also in the future, is challenging. Often, clients do not understand what is involved in maintaining a facility after the work is complete or how to make design changes on the front end that will help lower maintenance costs in the future. This is where RUSH Facilities fits into the picture. “By providing those insights during the design and construction phases the client ends up with a better final product,” Dillow observed. “In facilities, it is not only construction, but also continuing maintenance that determines the life of a facility, its optimal operation, and the total life cycle cost,” he said.
