It is conducted through a series of surveys and analysis against industry standards and statutory requirements
By obtaining all available property literature and design criteria and ensuring that surveys and investigations confirm the data available, as well as identifying and confirming the data that is not available
The report will be a written, factual evaluation of all aspects of a property including comparison and analysis against a short-listed selection of properties and industry standards
The Property Evaluation
Many organisations fail to plan for the long-term occupation of premises, ignoring life cycle cost scenarios, expansion, contingency planning and environmental impact. These are but a few of the areas appraised in a Property Evaluation.
By addressing the many component factors of a property, your Workplace Expert is able to benchmark their suitability to both the project brief and the market in general.
In many instances the selection of a property will be based on strong commercial factors such as rent, rates, service charge or Landlord incentives such as financial contributions or rent-free periods. The physical make up of a property should not however be ignored, no matter how closely it matches with the net usable space requirement or the most efficient planning grid.
Whilst property agents and surveyors will provide invaluable analysis on the property structure, the internal components of a property and how these match to the project brief are outside the scope of many professionals. The importance, however, of matching air conditioning systems to either open plan or cellular work environments, is critical to controlling initial budgetary expenditure along with the life cycle costs often experienced across a 10 year lease.
The Property Evaluation is a critical tool in the Workplace Optimisation process and at the early stages of a project it is recommended that it be undertaken in conjunction with several other properties by way of comparison.
