Planned Maintenance Schemes/Programming
We believe in providing a structured approach to future property maintenance to safe guard and protect the long term condition of a building in order to enhance its value. Assessment of a property’s condition, its maintenance liability and producing strategies to improve operational and cost effectiveness throughout the whole life of a building are key elements that we apply to achieve this.
