A condition survey is a thorough evaluation of a building intended to establish the condition of its assets.
Assessing the condition of a building’s building services assets is a vital step in developing a comprehensive maintenance strategy, ensuring that building owners and operators have all the information they need to plan maintenance activities to keep the building in operation.
Condition surveys examine each aspect of the building, capturing and reporting details of its current condition.
Condition surveys enable facilities management teams to make informed decisions regarding human and financial resources required to prevent failures, prepare long term asset investment plans, identify budgets required for maintenance work and recommend intrusive inspections outside the scope of the condition survey.
Conventional plant condition surveys (sometimes known as dilapidation surveys) are often simple visual inspections, however BSRIA also offers more detailed investigations including functional assessment and performance testing of plant.
An independent condition survey from BSRIA will give you the information you need to help:
If planning for asset replacement is required, our asset condition surveys can provide indicative remaining life expectancy of assets with cost of replacement over an agreed study period. This will support Life Cycle Costing analysis or reviews.
BSRIA will conduct a visual examination of the physical condition of the plant, specialist inspections and tests using condition monitoring equipment
Surveys take the form of a visual inspection that may include examination of maintenance and commissioning records. Specialist inspections and tests using condition monitoring equipment
such as thermal imaging and ultrasonic examination enhance the visual survey. Thermal imaging of electrical assets provides a greater level of safety for surveying as it can often be conducted without removing covers eliminating live working and for mechanical assets it provides supplementary information to be gathered without the need to shut down. Similarly, ultrasonic thickness testing of pipework allows for non-destructive investigation of the condition of the assets pipework systems without interruption of service
Our non-destructive testing services include:
Independent condition surveys from BSRIA will give you the information you need to help forward planning for plant upgrades and replacements, assessment of maintenance schedules, and identification of deficiencies in building condition.
