Property management is about planning ahead. It is prudent to project forward on a three, five, or even a ten-year basis, to identify cyclical works such as external redecorations, internal common parts redecorations, window renewals, repairs, lift upgrades, etc. This approach will inevitably identify economies of scale, such as the use of access scaffolding for certain works. Arun Associates have a good track-record in cyclical maintenance and repairs to blocks of flats, offices, commercial and residential buildings.
We can even arrange drone surveys of high-level areas, to identify otherwise concealed defects and issues. Modern technology can save the client both time and costs. Being ahead of the curve is expected by clients in the twenty first century, and advance-planning is also an expectation of leaseholders and tenants, to help manage their budgets, and minimise disruption to their homes and businesses.
From site survey to providing a cyclical and planned maintenance programme, together with associated budget cost estimates, Arun building surveyors understand property, building materials and maintenance regimes. They also will take into account the health and safety issues of the CDM 2015 regulations, relevant to your project, helping to assist the client to ensure that the contractor is competent in carrying out the works.
Working on occupied buildings is sometimes unavoidable, but disruption to occupants will need to be minimal, and the specific needs of key stakeholders incorporated into the project documentation. Communication is the prime objective of all our property-based projects, whether that is with the property manager, contractors, or statutory authorities involved. Reporting on a regular basis, avoiding superfluous information in progress reports, and adding real value to the project is our principal aim in your project.
