In this time, NIFES has developed an advanced capability to deliver realistic, user friendly and independent surveys carried out by professional building and engineering surveyors. In addition to surveying skills, our consultants provide pragmatic advice to support the University strategically, focusing on the combined objective of all six property appraisal facets.

This may be driven by:

  • CIF and Asset Management Requirements
