Drones were used to inspect the complex and difficult-to-access roof areas, which were a critical component of the structure, and our client required surety of cost / condition for cash flow projections as scaffolding was not due to be erected for a number of months.
We highlighted the key concerns and provided a detailed repair schedule forecast for the next 10 years. Our advice made the developer aware of structurally significant issues that would need to be addressed before any conversion works could get underway.
Our building surveys cover all aspects of the site beyond the buildings and contents. Compass advised on the need for specialist investigations to determine risks from environmental issues. We also considered site topography & access, energy efficiency upgrades, fire hazards etc.
Compass were instructed to prepare a Schedule of Dilapidations for the landlord on this former bank property in Sheffield, ahead of a potential lease surrender.
One of many Planned Maintenance surveys we have carried out for education clients, this secondary school is part of the Trust’s current portfolio.
