Abstract:

Presently, Base Civil Engineers BCEs have no way of measuring their organizations day-to-day performance in maintaining and improving the appearance of their installations. This thesis develops a base and facility appearance rating system to meet this need and to support the Air Force Engineering and Services Centers Project IMAGE initiatives. Preliminary data for the rating system was collected through personal interviews, and a review of Major Command appearance inspection programs. This survey was sent to all CONUS Wing and Base Commanders, and BCEs. An additional survey study was conducted with a sample of the base population at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. The analysis showed that both groups believe the condition of the base grounds, the exterior maintenance of the facilities, and the base color scheme are the most important Civil Engineering maintenance activities for good base appearance. Both groups also feel that these activities apply most to a bases administrative facilities, Military Family Housing, and community areas.
