Building Condition Assessment
For organizations looking to increase revenue and profit, pushing buildings maintenance to deliver greater efficiency and uptime but at lower costs, becomes crucial. This can only be achieved through condition-based maintenance. The condition-based maintenance concept stands on a condition assessment (baseline measurement) of buildings and technical installations, in combination with a priority matrix and long-term vision on building usage. This can be followed by periodic condition assessments on selected assets, taking into account asset life cycles.
Energinvest provides an independent assessment of the condition of buildings, based on the leading norm for condition assessments of buildings and technical installations, the Dutch standard NEN2767. During an inspection round, a certified inspector visually inspects every asset and – depending on different parameters – determines a condition score on a 6-point scale. This quantifies the degradation of the building and installation elements based on the observed defects. The information gathered during the condition assessment can then be used to:
- Gain a clear insight into the current condition of assets and their deficiencies
- Perform the right maintenance interventions on the right assets at the right time
- Prioritize critical assets to obtain the required condition score more quickly (priority matrix)
- Reduce maintenance cost of buildings with lower priority
- Develop a realistic multi-year maintenance plan
- Develop forecasts by Opex and/or life-cycle cost analysis
- Improve budget transparency and predictability
- Draft a technical specification with KPIs / SLAs for result-oriented and/or performance maintenance contract
These reports can then be used for budgeting purposes (Opex & Capex) within the smart Cost Model and/or for defining the building value and the Maintenance & Repair performance requirements of an EPC Contract (smartEPC).
With more than 500.000 m2 of buildings assessed, Energinvest has gained a strong experience in performing and reporting on NEN2767 condition assessments. If required, we translate the results into a practical long-term maintenance forecast.
