Streamlining California Community College facilities management.

FUSION (Facilities Utilization, Space Inventory Options Net) is a database of over 90 million square feet of California Community College facilities that tracks the condition assessments and develops cost modeling for maintenance projects, enabling colleges to plan budgets and help facilitate the passing of much-needed bond measures. The FUSION project team is comprised of representatives from California’s 72 community college districts, FoundationCCC, and the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (Chancellor’s Office).
