We were appointed to produce a Planned Preventative (PPM) schedule to set the resident’s service charge budget for the following years levy.
Due to the size of the development, four of our surveyors attended the site. We completed the inspection in one day. In addition, we commissioned a drone survey to inspect the roof due to restricted access across the site. Finally, we used detailed drawings to measure specific areas so we could produce accurate budget costs.
We produced a fully costed 10-year maintenance plan for each of the buildings on the site. This level of detail enabled our clients to set their service charges accurately and plan preventative and cosmetic repairs over the next ten years.
The size of the site meant that the PPM schedule took considerable time to produce, particularly in respect of the associated repair and maintenance costs. Having reviewed the drone footage in detail, we were able to identify structural defects due to the high-resolution images captured.
The report was designed to facilitate an efficient yearly review of those items specified in the schedule. Subsequently, our client was able to plan maintenance works with maximum flexibility. Where possible, each item and associated cost was grouped to optimise access, labour and material costs.
