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
  • Future planned maintenance costs over a chosen period
  • Costs to bring up to standard
  • Recommendations, concerns, further action
  • Data provided for existing property/facilities management systems
  • 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.

Six Facet Survey data is gathered using electronic tools, ensuring consistency of results between different surveyors. From these data readouts, an assessment of the condition and risk for each facet element is determined.

The consequent results allow NHS estates managers to allocate condition categories to their properties on a per facet basis. Provided together with a summary of remedial works required, photos of non-compliant areas and estimated costs to bring each facet to a safe and acceptable condition, Oakleaf’s Six Facet Surveys assist clients in prioritising budget allocation to the most critical areas.
