Brian Eyley Partnership (B E P) can survey a building complex, identify the defects and maintenance requirements, assess costs and prepare a maintenance plan to spread the costs over a number of years, maximising value for money.
It is often the case that buildings are maintained on an ad-hoc basis without proper planning. This results in inefficient spending probably with excessive peaks and troughs and almost certainly with poor quality control. This can be a major problem for businesses with cash flow sensitivity and organisations funded by grant aid (eg schools).
The solution is to prepare a pro-active Maintenance Plan which enables all major expenditure to be planned in advance therefore enabling proper competitive quotations and quality control in the preparation of the specification leaving reactive maintenance for the small day to day repairs. This helps the organisation predict and plan for the higher spending works, thus reducing funding difficulties and also resulting is a better maintained building at lower cost.
We act for a number of organisations to implement Maintenance Plans once prepared. This requires the administration of conventional repair contracts but, in addition, smaller repairs have to be organised and, possibly, a response maintenance programme can be incorporated. The Plan is updated on a regular basis or after major works have been implemented.
Another factor with leasehold buildings is that most tenants are responsible for some or all of the repairs and tend to leave it until the end of the lease before carrying out repairs. This is not cost efficient and often results in a higher cost than would be the case if proper maintenance planning had been undertaken and/or a much higher monetary claim from the building owner!
We usually hope to save the amount of our fees when preparing and administering a Maintenance Plan whilst achieving a higher standard of maintenance works.
