Each solution developed for an Institution is customized to the needs of their respective facilities.

Institutions are not required to utilize the full scope of the contract. It is designed to provide flexible solution development based on the needs of each institution.
CGL needs to understand the scope of work and equipment inside and outside of the facilities for which the institution desires CGL to perform maintenance. The contract is flexible enough to allow a variety of solutions from supplementing an existing workforce to CGL handling all labor, subcontractors, and materials required for the provision of all maintenance. Therefore, the desired scope defines the information CGL will need. Typical information needed would be the square footage of the facilities, equipment lists, copies of equipment records, and compliance reports (fire alarm, suppression, elevators, generators, etc.) for maintenance. Landscaping would be service level expectations for turf, beds, planting and pruning, etc. Custodial would need to understand service levels, common spaces, foot traffic, flooring types, etc. If this information is not available, CGL will work with the agency to obtain the information needed.
