Building Maintenance Optimization Consultants

About Us

We are adventurous maintenance management enthusiasts with backgrounds in engineering, consulting, and management. We form a plan, work with our clients, crawl around buildings looking for assets, prepare and deliver data, integrate that data with newly implemented or existing software, and follow up on results.

BMOC services are built upon industrial engineering principles such as economic decision making, quality control, and labor management. Economic decision making and the morale of the workforce is of utmost importance to us. It is our mission in the facilities management industry to apply these principles and, by doing so, promote productiveness at the labor, management, and administrative levels.

Additionally, each of our projects is completed using an engineered approach. All facilities management organizations are different & call for a designed methodology. We are flexible, capable, & take nothing for granted.

Jonathan Thomas

Jonathan (Jon) Thomas, PE, CEM, CRL founded BMOC in 2015 after leading facility condition assessment (FCA) projects for 17 years. While working in FCA and also leading the company’s equipment inventory work, he noticed persistent problems in the facilities management industry:

  1. Poor asset data for existing buildings was rampant.
  2. An organizational perception of the CMMS / EAMS / IWMS was common.
  3. New construction turnover frequently failed, even with BIM
  4. Equipment inventory work was difficult and required a thorough understanding of building systems: old, new, and future.
  5. Educational programs do not train asset management staff who understand buildings systems, software, and management.
  6. Preventive maintenance procedures from generic sources, trade organizations, and original equipment manufacturers were inconsistent and added little value to large scale facilities management.
  7. There were no organizations in the market focusing on this work as a specialty.

BMOC was founded on the thesis that CMMS / EAMS / IWMS is underutilized and undervalued due to the asset data within rather than its functionality and new construction turnover fails broadly because facilities needs to own the process. BMOC has been established to solve these problems and provide facilities with a partner who can add expertise and continuity in these fields.

Doug Litwiller

Doug Litwiller, PE, joined BMOC July, 2023. Doug has been working in the facilities management space the majority of his career. Doug has been involved in the facilities management industry his entire career from being a college campus utilities distribution engineer, a power plant engineer, an engineering director for two hospitals, energy management consultant for an investor-owned utility company, and, most recently was the Associate Director for Energy Conservation at the University of Iowa. One of Doug’s “claims to fame” was bringing fault detection and diagnostics (FDD) technology to the U of I campus.

One of Doug’s passions is to connect people who have questions with people who have the answers with the ultimate goal of helping prevent the reinvention of the proverbial wheel. Doug has created and facilitated a number of interinstitutional facilities management collaboration groups during his career. One of his other passions is spreading the gospel of effective asset management.

Doug has a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Iowa State University. He is a registered professional engineer (Iowa).

Greg Adams

Greg Adams, MSBCFM, joined BMOC May, 2023, after thirty years in key facility management positions in four higher education institutions across two states, and two terms with the University System of Georgia Office of Real Estate & Facilities where he interfaced with all State of Georgia institutions, collaboratively pursuing high quality facilities management programs, including improved asset management and reductions in total costs of asset ownership. While working in the industry, Greg observed BMOC's unique and effective approach to solving common problems related to suboptimal asset management practices including challenged preventive maintenance programs and incomplete CMMS implementations and utilization. Greg joined BMOC because he has never personally seen an organization that could not experience solid returns on investments by taking advantage of BMOC's CMMS-agnostic consulting services.

We interface with both FM and capital projects to ensure that comprehensive, robust, and usable data is migrated into facilities operations. Contact BMOC if you work with capital projects, are charged with delivering the facilities management data, and perceive that you do not have the resources to do so within your organization. We have experienced and uniquely qualified people ready to support you.

General Contractors

Construction projects in institutional environments come with heavy data management and transfer requirements. There are several software solutions utilized during construction. The data from these applications needs to be aggregated, reconciled, streamlined, and then transferred into the facilities operations systems. Furthermore, barcoding and inventory work may be required by your client using subjective criteria. Building Maintenance Optimization Consultants, Inc. (BMOC) can work as a subcontractor to a General Contractor in this situation and make the process efficient and painless using experienced and high quality staff. Contact BMOC and we will add value to your bid and give you a competitive edge.

CMMS Vendors

You may have the right CMMS solution for your client but their data is incomplete and incoherent. They don’t have the information in their system to get the most out of your modules. This can happen on new installations, existing installations, and legacy versions needing upgrade. Let Building Maintenance Optimization Consultants, Inc. (BMOC) be your subject matter expert and asset data improvement service provider. We can work with you and your client so they can get the most out of your system. Our experienced and uniquely qualified professionals know building systems and CMMS. We’ll be the perfect fit.

Program Managers

If you are a program manager charged with the planning, programming, and budget for operations related to new construction projects and don’t have the resources to deliver, then Building Maintenance Optimization Consultants, Inc. (BMOC) can help. We analyze the new design and determine staffing and budget needs for maintenance, custodial, and grounds services. We assist with insourcing and outsourcing strategies. We maintain our cost and staffing model during the entire construction phase so we can make revisions in accordance with design changes. We develop and deliver executive level and public presentations. BMOC will be an effective member of your team.

Building Commissioning Agents

We have observed in some cases that building commissioning agents have been enlisted to support asset inventory and labeling services for the owner of the facility. The commissioning agent will agree but then find that the level of effort is much higher than anticipated. This is especially when retroactively presented standards and other requirements for inventory. Building Maintenance Optimization Consultants, Inc. (BMOC) understands that your work is highly complex and demanding. Adding inventory and data migration tasks on top of your extensive workload can be counter productive.

BMOC can add value to your services and give you a competitive edge in sales. We have experienced and uniquely professionals that can handle the inventory, data collection, data migration, and maintenance programming work among other tasks. We can also interface with your end user to ensure that the best product gets delivered.
