The Trust headquarters are at Springfield University Hospital in Tooting and provides community and hospital psychiatric services to Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth as well as offering more specialist services to people throughout the UK.

The Trust requires building condition information to report on backlog maintenance and to prioritise capital and maintenance investment.

Approach

NIFES Consulting Group were commissioned in December 2013 to undertake 6 Facet Property Appraisals addressing physical condition, statutory compliance, space utilisation, functionality, quality and environmental performance.

A team of surveyors and consultants carried out the 6 Facet inspections over the course of a 3 month programme; the fee was approx. £20,000.

Results

The outputs from Property Appraisals were detailed in MS Excel spreadsheets for ease of use and analysis.

NIFES reported on current condition grades, remedial works, risk categories, time scales and implementation costs.

The results will be used to inform estate strategy development together with detailed elemental maintenance planning.

NIFES were commissioned to undertake Property Appraisals covering clinical, residential, rehabilitation and administrative buildings across 9 sites.
