We can support asset managers in making best use of limited budgets to maintain the fabric of their stock while maximising capital asset values and rental income.  

Exploring innovative responses to initiatives such as the Empty Homes Toolkit and Buildings for Life runs to the core of our building surveying service.

For both private developers and social landlords the housing sector is complex and subject to continual change be that from initiatives like the Green Deal or legislative compliance such as the Energy Act 2011.  An understanding and appreciation of these challenges is integral to the service Ian Bridge Consultancy provides.
