Condition Surveys (Education)
The Education Condition Survey provides practical information for assessing School building stock condition.
The Condition Survey
This is a comprehensive professional condition survey that can be tailored to the client's needs, the education condition survey is based on the requirements of DfEE Asset Management Plans 'Condition Assessment' but can provide much more information than the basic requirements.
Oakleaf's condition surveys are nationally recognised and are used across the country, reporting:
- Current building condition
- Costs to bring up to standard
- Future planned maintenance costs over a chosen period
- Recommendations, concerns, further action
- Data provided for existing property/facilities management systems and data inputting
- Data for business case building
Data is gathered using hand held electronic gathering tools that provide data consistency between surveyors and have in-built checking and productivity functionality. The tools mirror a standard pro-forma style and are used to record the condition of each element/sub element. Priority Rankings are laid out as per industry standards. Oakeaf's Enhanced CRB checked, highly experienced - in house surveyors have surveyed hundreds of Schools and Educational buildings across the UK.
