Targeted Assessment: Comprehensive Condition Audit
In August, 2019, ACPS published the results of a targeted comprehensive condition audit of Naomi Brooks performed by third party contractors. The auditors found the following issues:
- Properly Support Gas Piping on Roof, Replaced Rooftop HVAC Units Have High Curb Adapters Making Maintenance Difficult and Hazardous. Stormwater from Roof Discharges at Foundation Wall, Excessive Moisture in Basement Mechanical Room, Numerous Crawl Space Vents are Sealed, Preventing Proper Ventilation of Crawl Space.
