Life Cycle Assessment and Maintenance Planning

Expert and pragmatic advice to building owners, occupiers and property managers in respect to capital expenditure and building maintenance, and physical implementation of capital and maintenance works.

Reducing costs and improving performance.

Buildings are often the single largest asset owned by either an individual or an organisation and should be properly maintained to ensure their durability and longevity as an investment. Asset management provides opportunities for organisations to make the right decisions by integrating the concepts of risk taking and other critical project management success factors to achieve the strategic goal: minimisation of overall life cycle cost and maximisation of value. Value being the physical value of the asset itself and the benefits and savings that may arise through the lifecycle.  The risks of not following a comprehensive maintenance plan are the asset deteriorating at an uncontrolled rate resulting in a corresponding diminution in their amenity, depreciation of rental/capital values and potentially with compliance, Health and Safety or other legal implications.

The efficiency of a property or a property portfolio is becoming increasingly important as energy, maintenance and materials costs rise. Understanding what you have got and what it will cost to maintain or bring up to standard, it is often essential, especially if you are a portfolio owner, looking at value or income.

Condition assessment and maintenance planning is not simply about collecting data, and neither is it about simply knowing what maintenance has to be done and when. To gain the most from this type of service, requires an outlook that appreciates and understands the strategic and tactical goals and objectives of the owner, occupier and / or business who are using the property. These strategic objectives underpin all condition assessment and maintenance planning activity

Life Cycle Assessment and Maintenance Planning

“Having worked with David Clifton previously, and built up a healthy respect for his knowledge and professionalism, we were early clients for CS&R

CS&R has subsequently delivered a suite of comprehensive condition assessment reports covering most of our 50+ building/250,000 sq m portfolio.  The reports were well structured and accurate and have provided excellent insight on the state of our building stock.  Consequently, this has given us greater risk awareness and is helping, along with SPM Assets, to provide us with a solid asset replacement and risk management plans.

"Our experience of CS&R is of a collaborative, responsive and personable team that we can trust to provide sound advice and deliver what we asked for.”
