Building Lifecycle Report
Building Lifecycle Inspection Report
From the time a building is constructed until the time it is demolished, buildings require maintenance and upgrading.
It is advisable for building owners to devise a maintenance and upgrade strategy, also known as a Capital Works Fund for the purpose of maintaining the economic life and capital value of their building.
In producing the Building Lifecycle Report, we examine and assess the building’s components, facilities and surrounds.
We prepare a comprehensive cost plan and program for the building’s present and future maintenance requirements.
The 5 Stages of Lifecycle Management
Our Building Lifecycle Management isn’t solely a solution we offer, it’ s our philosophy. Moreover, it’ s based upon our holistic approach.
We analyze your business goals and buildings to understand the short term needs and the long term requirements.
There are five basic stages to this process.
The first stage is an inspection analysis. That’s where our team identifies short term risks – the areas that immediately provide safety issues, or possible areas of damage to your building. These are the things we’re going to look out for first.
Every building has some inherent design flaws and we want to understand the design of your building so we can predict where some potential problem areas might be. From that inspection analysis, we’ll create a forecast that will help us identify where we think your future issues may be with your building.
2. Condition Reporting
Now the second step is the condition report. After we’ve done the inspection analysis, we present you with a condition report. The condition report has a couple of important purposes. First, it’s a document that provides the state of health of your building. Secondly, it’s a blueprint for risk management and helps us identify the problem areas for you that you might want to consider and budget for in the future. Thirdly, the condition report will contain any recommended actions. This report will not only give a clear assessment of where you are today but be helpful in planning for the future.
3. Consulting Solution Design
After we’ve done the condition report, we’ll go ahead and create the consulting solutions design. This is a list of the detailed action items and steps that have to be accomplished. This will cover risk areas, action items, timeframes that work needs to be done by, and an overall prescriptive plan to restore your building. It also explains the methodology of how we will fix the problems or take corrective action. And then it gives you the scope and design of the project construction. So everything is laid out, your expectations are set on what will happen, when it will happen, how’s it going to happen, and how much it will cost.
4. Project Management
The fourth step is project management.
We will procure and deliver the trades required to address the approved current and future building works.
- All engineering & architectural design plans
- Procurement of trades and tenders
- Value engineering
- Project audit review
- Total project delivery
Every step of what we do, we use a strict quality control process to make sure the work is done right, so the work is only done once.
5. Asset Preservation
Now the final and fifth stage of Building Lifecycle Management is asset preservation.
We’ve analyzed the building, we’ve made the corrective repairs, we’ve brought it back up to its optimum life. Now we want to protect it in the future, so we offer extended warranties, and we’re always on the search for premature failures. We are looking to correct these failures way ahead of time.
And then finally, we want to be part of the planning processes of your future.
Are you going to put solar panels on the building? Are you going to put the walkway from one building to the next? We want to know, and we want to take part in that to help you do those projects successfully so that they don’t impact the envelope of the building.
