When you are working in an environment as fast-paced as the emergency services, any way of saving time and drive efficiencies will make a difference. With so many challenges daily, solutions that can optimise performance are going to be invaluable to your emergency organisation.

Oakleaf provides a specific data capture Pro-forma to assess all aspects of a physical condition appraisal. This is based on the Estate code and the ‘Risk-Based Methodology’ document. Our survey identifies any items that do not meet an appropriate condition, as well as documents the items that do.
The elements are all given a condition category. Oakleaf provides a budget cost to upgrade to condition ‘B’ or repair the element. Our service is used by many organisations to improve their performance, including St Andrews Healthcare, which involves assessing over 140,000 sqft of premises.
Fire Risk Assessments
Oakleaf are specialists in providing fire risk assessments for both life risk and property risk. The assessments identify risks using a comprehensive but simple to understand matrix. It also details the practical recommendations that should be implemented to comply with Fire Safety Law.
We are proud to have been awarded certification under the BAFE SP205 third party certification scheme. This is a UKAS accreditation scheme to evidence our consistently high standards of service.
We provide fire risk assessments to organisations and estates of all sizes. Read all about one example client, the University Hospital of North Staffordshire in a project that involved surveying 24 buildings across three sites.
Detailed and up-to date CAD plans are an important component of any future planning of works maintenance and building alterations. They are also a great way of optimising emergency services. Using detailed CAD plans to inform your decision making is important. They provide a detailed overview of your estate, whilst also providing a reference point for external contractors to work more efficiently and effectively.
Our measured surveys provide you with Floor Plans, Site Plans, Building Elevations, Building Sections and Roof Plans. Alongside updated CAD drawings, decisions on space usage in an emergency services estate can now be taken with a level of precision that will improve performance.
