Architectural Design and Project Management

Property Appraisal Surveys

The majority of Property Appraisals identify defects and faults in a building or across a portfolio of buildings, the defects or faults can range from rotten timber frame windows to poor internal space utilization and poor team working.

Run-down buildings and failing components, can lead to inefficient buildings with high energy costs. Poorly planned and badly maintained buildings can also have an adverse effect on staff morale and their health.

The defects (or general wear and tear and lack of maintenance works) if left unattended can cause component failure which in turn can lead to expensive replacement costs.

Poor space utilization or poor building layouts in a single building or across a portfolio of buildings, can lead to disjointed team working or higher than necessary property rental costs.

Property Appraisal Remedial Work

After completion of the property appraisal and the when the survey results have been issued to the client, NIFES Project Management team can offer a presentation to discuss and explain the surveys findings.

The Project Management team can help identify project priorities and assist in recommending Capital Fund allocation.
