Hertford College, Oxford Project 

Condition Survey and Planned Preventative Maintenance

Website: www.hertford.ox.ac.uk

As part of an Estate Strategy commissioned by Hertford College, Oxford Ian Bridge Consultancy were asked to undertake a pilot building condition survey and produce a planned preventative maintenance programme for one of the College properties in the North Oxford Victorian Suburb Conservation Area.

Project coverage

Hertford College pre-aquisition survey
Postgraduate accommodation
The property, arranged over four floors including a basement, was constructed in the late 1800s and is currently converted into accommodation for Hertford College postgraduate students. 
Hertford College building surveys
Condition survey
We inspected the property including building fabric and services and drew together our conclusions within a formal condition survey report.
Hertford College Oxford condition survey
Prioritised maintenance
A vital component of the condition data was the production of a 10 year planned preventative maintenance programme identifying all defects to the property, specifying remedial works required to correct defects. Our Quantity Surveyor applied a cost to each item, giving the College an order of priority over a ten-year time frame to remediate defects.
