Turning Knowledge Into Action

Whether it’s working with a member to benchmark data, creating building portfolios that optimize capital resources, quantifying campus sustainability performance, or optimizing the utilization of your existing space, Sightlines turns data into action plans that support both your facilities and institutional mission. Sightlines is the only company that visits every one of its college, university, and independent K-12 members annually to collect, verify, and qualify data. As a result, our facilities strategies are based on the most accurate data set available.

How is Sightlines different?

As a colleague, not a vendor, Sightlines’ core business is the strategic assessment of facilities.

We do not seek to sell equipment, provide design services, or outsource operations.

We do not rely on surveys or self-reported data. Sightlines’ professionals collect base data on-site alongside your team.

Our proprietary ROPA process gives you confidence that our conclusions are based on the most accurate data in the industry.

Sightlines presents a compelling story to "make-the-case" for change to senior leadership.

Don’t take our word for it.

Duquesne University has found many ways to use the data Sightlines provides… our ROPA+ data is shown to our president and incorporated into a town hall meeting for all faculty and staff, to show the improvements in deferral rate, our increased PM program, and our capital spending levels.

Rod Dobish

Executive Director of Facilities Management Duquesne University

Using Sightlines’ ROPA process, our facilities management team has been able to focus on obtaining operating targets while demonstrating their effective stewardship of our institution’s assets…and has created alignment and credibility among dept. managers, senior leadership, and the board of trustees.

ROPA allows us to see the timing of our upcoming need in a way that lets us plan for the best possible outcome. We want to ensure our campus is in a better place ten years from now, and ROPA is the tool that is going to help us do that.
