If you occupy a building for the purpose of just using it as an office then this is the survey for you. Management surveys will look at building materials that occupiers are likely to come into contact with. A good management survey will also take into account light maintenance tasks that will need to be undertaken. A management survey will also list where asbestos is present and assign priority assessments so that materials can be prioritised. The findings from this survey will go into a long term management strategy.

This survey will not look too hard into the building fabric. If you are undertaking a refurbishment project at a later date this survey will not be enough, you will need to undertake a refurbishment survey (ONLY OF THE AREA YOU WISH TO REFURBISH) when the time comes.
