The most effective method of maintaining the performance and integrity of any property is to implement a planned maintenance programme. Planned maintenance schedules are designed to ensure that any potential issues are dealt with before a problem occurs, thus reducing the amount of reactive maintenance and allowing maintenance budgets to be planned in advance.
An additional advantage of planned maintenance work is that it can be scheduled around the operation of the property and thus minimise disruption to the occupier.
Planned maintenance schedules are beneficial to both landlords and tenants. For landlords it aids in protecting the building’s condition, thereby ensuring their investment does not fall into disrepair. For tenants it aids in reducing the size of a potential dilapidations claim at the end of the lease term.
- Our experienced Chartered surveyors are able to provide assessments of the current condition of a building and its requirement for repairs in the immediate to long term.
- We aim to ensure that our maintenance schedules reduce the amount of reactive maintenance and therefore the associated costs and disturbance to our clients.
- Our Planned Maintenance Schedules are tailored to our clients’ individual requirements. Typically, all maintenance works required to a building are planned over a specific period of time, i.e. 5-10 years.
- Our schedules prioritise works required and provide budget costs for the works to enable our clients to budget for the works to ensure that funding is available for when the planned maintenance is required.
