Maintenance Reports

A key tool in the management of buildings is Planned and Preventative Maintenance Reports (PPM)

These reports can be used to establish the works necessary in respect to the planned and preventative maintenance of a building, detailing the frequency of work together with the indicative cost of that work element. Typically the reports detail the maintenance of the building over a 15-25 year period, depending on the client's brief. The reports are usually broken down into years or groups of years, detailing the necessary work and the cost. Urgent works are detailed as a priority. Clients can then budget for the works and plan well ahead.

These reports are of benefit to schools, nursing homes, resident's associations, together with all types of commercial, office and industrial buildings - anyone responsible for the maintenance of a building.

Turner Surveyors work with appropriate mechanical and electrical engineering consultants and quantity surveying consultants to form a complete report. Turner Surveyors undertake the schedules of condition and form the 'building' part of the report, together with coordinating the consultants and providing the final report in the correct format as required. The mechanical and electrical engineers complete the asset registers and form the services part of the report. The quantity surveyors form the pricing element for the work. 

Obviously the content and presentation of the reports can be tailored to the needs of the client, and often this work combines with a measured survey to form a complete building manual.

Care needs to be taken in the commissioning of the planned and preventative maintenance reports to ensure that the report is relevant to the client's needs. Turner Surveyors will sit down and discuss these needs, together with providing recommendations as appropriate as to how the maintenance should be implemented, to ensure that a cost effective and efficient product delivery is achieved.
