It’s tempting to put off building maintenance, as there are always other demands on the budget. But planned, proactive maintenance today can avoid huge emergency repair costs tomorrow. Building inspection is an important tool in determining building condition and detecting defects before issues escalate. A quick and practical approach is needed to perform periodic building inspections, followed by a more detailed inspection for severe defects.
THE PROCESS: WHAT WE DELIVER
Energise can help you to avoid disruption and spikes in expenditure associated with emergency repairs by reviewing your maintenance and compliance needs. We’ll assess the condition of your buildings, then work with you to plan a maintenance schedule that works for you, other interested parties and your budget. We provide a matrix solution for visual building inspections, based on two separate assessments: condition assessment and priority assessment.
Your assessment will include:
- Summary and conclusions
- Statutory requirements
- External description and condition of the fabric
- Internal description and condition of the fabric
- Review of mechanical and electrical services
- Approximate costings
Once the inspection is complete, the data is uploaded to an online analysis and reporting system, designed to simplify and accelerate data analysis, as well as to avoid errors with in-built validation. This helps you to identify the actual condition of your buildings in more detail, and plan accordingly.
