Six Facet Survey

Six Facet Surveys (Property Appraisals) are available under our NHS SBS Framework: SBS/MN/PZJ/8874

NIFES has carried out Six Facet Surveys (also known as property appraisals) for a host of NHS Trusts and Universities over a number of years both directly and in support of existing Service Level Agreements.

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 Trust strategically, focusing on the combined objective of all six facets.

This may be driven by:

  • ERIC Return Information
  • Assessment of Backlog Maintenance
  • Strategic Services Development Plan
  • Estates Strategy Development
  • Refurbishment Plans
  • Future Cost Planning
