A 1960s residential apartment block. The residents were becoming increasingly concerned about the unexpected costs they had to pay out for adhoc building repairs. An example was water leaking into top floor apartments due to deterioration of the flat roof coverings and the ensuing costs and disruption. They felt they did not have an understanding of the state of their building; they could not plan maintenance or budget.
Metcalfe Briggs completed a condition survey of all external parts of the building and the internal common areas. The survey delivered a detailed document that described each building element and its condition. It was used as the basis for accruing a budget and completing needed maintenance work.
