Building Condition Assessments
What are Building Condition Assessments?
A Building Condition Assessment is a report done as a result of an inspection and evaluation of an existing Building.
There are many types of Building Inspections, but a Building Condition Assessment not only identifies the faults in a Building, it also puts costs next to those items, so that a Budget for the Building can be prepared.
Building Condition Assessments are used mainly in Facility Management and Building Asset Management for Portfolios of Properties, however they can also be used for individual properties just as effectively.
The Budget is not only limited to the immediate costs, it also provides costs of work to be carried out in the future over as many years as you wish to calculate.
Building Condition Assessments should be done by competent Assessors, to evaluate all Elements and Services of the Building and its maintenance requirements.
When the assessment is being done, it is also an opportunity to assess potential Risks associated with the Building and to provide Costs to reduce those Risks.
Ranking the urgency of Work Items can assist in prioritising Work to be done as well as distinguishing those that may have a legislative requirement to be done.
A Building Assessment is a vital pre-requisite to assist with overall Facility Management and Building Asset Management Planning.
