Step 2: Detailed physical assessment and specialist reports

After the first 10 Year Property Plan (10YPP) meeting and desktop Condition Assessment, the 10YPP consultant will conduct a detailed physical (walk-around) assessment of the condition of the building fabric, the internal fabric, and will organise specialist reports on key infrastructure services.

Physical condition assessment

A Condition Assessment is a systematic review of all building, plant, facilities and underground services. The findings are used to identify what maintenance and capital works are required over the next 10 years. The Condition Assessment has two parts; a desktop assessment and detailed physical assessment.

The detailed physical assessment is conducted by the 10YPP consultant to assess the condition of the building fabric (roofs, walls, floors) and the internal fabric (ceiling and wall linings, trim, paintwork, carpets, windows).

High-level specialist reports

At this stage, the 10YPP consultant engages specialists to do high-level reports on 5 key infrastructure features:

  • electrical
  • roofing
  • plumbing
  • drainage
  • boiler and heating.

You will be invoiced directly for the costs of any specialist reports if you have opted out of the Ministry engaged consultants process.

All additional specialist reports or detailed reports are a school operational cost, recoverable from any resulting projects.

10-year forecast

The 10YPP consultant uses the information from the specialist reports and the physical assessment to create an initial 10-year forecast of the costs of maintaining the school’s buildings and facilities.
