The Buildings Office plans to monitor the condition of the estate at both building and elemental levels. Building Condition assessments are high-level assessments based on the age, life cycle, use and level of investment.
Elemental Condition assessments are based on physical inspection, maintenance history and performance history of the major elements and systems in a building. Building Condition assessments will be carried out by the Buildings Office management team headed by the Buildings Officer. Elemental Condition assessments will be carried out by the Maintenance Managers and the Services Engineer. Condition assessments will be available to Persons In Control, Heads of School, Director of Buildings, SFC and the HEA.
Building Assessments will be updated every two years and elemental assessments updated every five years. The Buildings Officer will report annually to SFC on the condition of the Estate.
This service is limited to Building and Elemental condition assessment and excludes assessment of suitability of function, accessibility, energy efficiency or decorative state.
While there are no charges for this service, additional assessments such as suitability of function or accessibility could be carried out for a charge.
