Project Involvement

SDS carried out a campus wide non-intrusive condition and maintenance survey of the Barnstaple campus

The high level review determined priority areas for general mechanical and electrical works on a system by system basis

Systems surveyed included the existing heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, fire alarms, hot and cold water, switchboards and power

The spreadsheet based report included approximate SPONS based costing appraisal for future system replacement over the short, medium and long term

In addition to the survey, an audit was undertaken on the college’s compliance with statutory maintenance, testing and safety requirements.

Project Benefits

The report allowed the college to identify which buildings and systems, on the Barnstaple campus, were a maintenance priority and allow preparation of future outline spending plans.
