If you are carrying out a renovation project then it will be necessary for you will to undertake a refurbishment survey of the areas that are subject to a programme of works. It is beneficial in the long run to get the scope of work absolutely right when planning a refurbishment survey so that areas are not omitted or adequate consideration is not given when work begins. Refurbishment surveys are classed as a fully intrusive survey that will look into the fabric of the building.

This survey on its own is not enough to base a full management strategy on but the information within the survey will need to be taken into account when developing or updating the management information.
