Stock Condition Surveys
Aligned to the needs of Registered Social Landlords, Housing Associations and Local Authorities
Having accurate information about your housing stock puts you in control, and saves you money when you plan and procure works.
1. You know what is required, and don't rely on suppliers telling you;
2. By having accurate stock data to share, you get more suppliers to quote; and
3. You can then conduct an archetype call off or bid, which gets more accurate pricing, and only the winner needs to do a detailed manufacturer survey.
Our approach is tailored to your individual needs: We can provide you with the raw data for self-analysis, or prepare a detailed report, highlighting any defects and maintenance needs, with advice in line with current legislation.
Our standard method includes Immediate feedback on completion of surveys to highlight any obvious risks and defects; and a full written report within one week (subject to stock numbers and prior agreement)
Service options include:
Initial analysis and collation of all existing data on your housing stock, to benchmark what you have, and identify data gaps
Evaluation of asset register; works register; BIM models; and previous construction contracts
Analysis of housing stock types, fabric/attributes and documented material warranties
Digital mapping of geographic location and diaspora/spread, to assist in project planning etc
Party Wall analysis: identification of all areas with third party ownership/private tenant elements

Aesthetic and capability analysis of fabric, fixtures and fittings to meet current performance needs
