A condition survey will help record and understand the fabric of any building and identify the component and its condition. The purpose is to record the fabric of the building and identify its condition to plan for future maintenance or repairs.
If you have a building, how do you know when to decorate, when to replace windows, or how long will your roof covering last? A condition report will help compile the necessary information and give a summary of works to prepare for in the next 1-5 years. Anything beyond 5 years has less accuracy therefore its important to not only create the condition survey of a building from year 0, but to repeat that inspection after 3-5 years to update the information that has been collected.
We regularly carry out condition survey reports for the States of Guernsey and have recently had the pleasure of surveying a wide variety of buildings in Alderney.
