Yellow Wood worked with Barnstable County officials to create an Asset Inventory of the County’s buildings, vehicles and parking. County officials closest to each piece of infrastructure worked on completing customized forms to gather information. Once all of the data had been collected, Yellow Wood developed an inventory database and used a systems approach to identify opportunities for efficiently managing and improving assets both within and between categories. In addition to the database, Yellow Wood was able to provide recommendations to help the County utilize the assessment and identify both short and long-term projects as part of the County Sustainability Project and the general maintenance of county infrastructure.
