Building Surveying

We understand the importance of maximising the efficiency and performance of built assets across the life cycle. Our expert team helps our clients manage, improve and enhance their property estate. Through asset data capture we make informed decisions about planned maintenance, statutory compliance and control and optimisation of expenditure.

Strategic Asset Management

To have certainty of budget expenditure, the future maintenance liabilities of the properties should be considered. This assessment will consider such matters as the condition of the construction elements, age and maintenance, location and the use of the property.
