The purpose of each building in a facility's portfolio is to support the business objectives. A key facilities portfolio performance parameter is the condition. Under-investment in facilities maintenance often leads to significant deterioration of the facility portfolio to the point where it can no longer meet the service needs of the business. The condition of the facility is assessed to gauge the level of deterioration and identify any condition-based issues and lifecycle, capital and operational expenses.

We are also able to develop Functionality Reports as prescribed by TEFMA (Tertiary Education Facilities Management Association) and adapted to suit the individual client requirments.

Repair and Maintenance Programmes can be developed using our Condition Assessment Reports to ensure economies of scale are achived across all buildings, disciplines and facilities.
