Modest spending on regular maintenance can reduce the need for costly repairs, protect the fabric of your building and save money in the longer term. Regular maintenance is the best way to ensure the continued preservation and future use of a building.
It is often the case that buildings are maintained on an ad-hoc basis without proper planning. This results in inefficient spending probably with excessive peaks and troughs and almost certainly with poor quality control. The solution is to prepare a pro-active Maintenance Plan which enables all major expenditure to be planned in advance, therefore enabling proper competitive quotations to be obtained. This helps an organisation or management company to predict and plan for the higher spending works.
Prior to a Maintenance Plan being prepared, it will first be necessary to carry out a detailed inspection of the property. A Schedule of Condition will then be drawn up identifying all defects in a formal report. Our team of professionally qualified Building Surveyors and Quantity Surveyors combine their skills to provide repair and maintenance plans which are presented in a tabular format, enabling the reader to gain an in depth understanding of the key issues in an easy to understand layout.
