Planned Maintenance & Defect Diagnosis

The Workman Building Consultancy team is highly experienced in dealing with maintenance and defect related works, both on the managed portfolio and for other external clients.

Our Chartered Building Surveyors can assess defects and wants of repair quickly and provide strategic maintenance advice using reporting formats tailored to suit particular requirements.

Our experience and links with specialists means we can provide advice on all building fabric related matters giving the client a single point of contact.

The teams' knowledge of property management, lease terms and the RICS Service Charge Code means that surveys and reports are prepared in an appropriate manner, aligned to the repairing liability of the parties, which aids recoverability and mitigates risk.

Our experience of estimating means we can prepare accurate budgets and cost forecasts as part of planned preventative maintenance (PPM) programmes or when considering individual defects or wants of repair. We appreciate the importance of established service charge budgets in the funding and recoverability of costs and work with clients to tailor the advice to reflect these factors.

Our building project experience means we will recommend a scope of work, procurement route and method of implementation that meet the financial, technical and logistical constraints of the instruction and is aligned with the management strategy of the asset.

Using our in-house CAD team we can undertake the design, specification and implementation of works. This reduces consultant fees, limits interface risk and provides a single point of contact.
