Client: Cranfield University

Survey: Condition Survey, Functional Suitability

Project: Functional Suitability Review

Sector: Education


Oakleaf were commissioned to undertake a detailed 10 year condition and functional suitability survey of the entire of Cranfield University's academic estate. 
The University is a specialist post graduate institution located to the heart of Bedfordshire and based around the former Cranfield Aerodrome; a 1930s airfield and associated buildings. Many of the contract's challenges revolved around surveying the original 'C-Type' hangers with careful consideration given to both the inherent design failings and the subsequent remedial recommendations made within the condition reports.
Following the initial tranche of surveys Oakleaf Surveying were contracted to survey all ancillary buildings as well as undertaking annual update survey. The data was delivered in a format to meet the University's FM system requirements as well as providing bespoke dashboards to aid financial reporting and HESA returns.
