As you may be aware, the Department of Estates has commissioned a condition survey and access audit of all University buildings, both residential and academic, on and off campus.

The surveys are purely visual and the company appointed to carry out the work, Rider Levett Bucknall, are very experienced and aware that they have to keep disruptions or intrusions down to a minimum.

The survey is being managed by Guy Gale, the Department of Estates' long term maintenance manager. He will be supported by Karen Hunter who will co-ordinate access across the University. Work has started and will finish in December.

Please advise Karen by email on if there are any particular dates that you would prefer your building or rooms not to be audited and a more suitable date for the visit will be arranged.
