Grounds Operations Analyses

Tortolan provides consulting services related to facility and school grounds operations. We will do an in-depth analysis of your grounds care operations. We look at landscaping, gardening, horticultural and mowing practices, athletic field maintenance and other aspects of school groundskeeping. We assess staffing, purchasing practices, equipment usage and interaction with other service departments.

We will evaluate your training programs. We will even evaluate how your grounds workers interface with the academic program, something that is ignored by virtually every other company.

We do not rely on using baseline data from other organizations to offer comparisons. We look at the unique facilities and culture of each client to determine optimal grounds operations. We believe that over-reliance on comparators leads to artificial data.

If you are considering outsourcing a portion or the entire department, we will help you evaluate the options. We are neither for nor against outsourcing. Our goal is to help you identify the most effective manner to manage your grounds department.

Please let us know if you would like to speak further with us about what we can do to help you with your grounds needs.
