Having an up-to-date condition survey for your property provides significant benefits, such as how it:

  • will enable asset managers to prioritise their maintenance
  • allows asset managers to argue for realistic maintenance budgets based on need
  • will also enable life cycle planning of maintenance
  • shows the effect of policy in setting standards
  • can also be used as part of option appraisals exercises for retention, disposal or development of specific buildings.
