Long-term plans and technical reports
A long-term planning report provides an independent overview of upcoming repair needs and their cost impacts in the medium and long term and highlights acute repair needs. A long-term planning study by a technical specialist involves examining initial details and available technical documentation for a site and conducting an on-site inspection of its structure and building technology. The specialist will interview the technical staff of a property concerning its history of repairs, and its condition and special features. The outcome is a clear long-term planning report prepared by specialists concerning the future repair needs over a span of 5 or 10 years.
Reporting on maintenance requirements is a statutory duty of condominium housing companies. A clear long-term plan prepared by an experienced specialist facilitates decision-making and ensures timely repairs. It also supports far-reaching maintenance arrangements and financial foresight. Continuous systematic and cyclical updating of maintenance requirement reports and drafting of technical condition assessments ensures that the company always has up-to-date details of its maintenance needs. The digital Conmer BI solution also provides more extensive information on how repairs will affect repair liabilities.
Technical condition assessment
A technical condition assessment is prepared by three specialists as an evaluation of the condition of a building that is broader than a long-term planning report. A condition assessment examines a site in greater depth and detail at the level of structural, HVAC and electrical subsystems. The outcome of a condition assessment is a report for the property that includes system descriptions and long-term planning measures for 10 years, together with a proposal on any needs for further condition studies.
Workflow of a condition assessment:
- The specialist team examines initial details and available technical documentation for a site, such as technical drawings and previously conducted surveys and studies.
- The specialists inspect the structural, HVAC and electrical systems of the property, and the situation with respect to official and periodic inspections of the site. The on-site inspection also includes interviews with staff responsible for technical aspects of the site concerning its condition and any repairs that have been made.
- The specialist team observes and reports on the potential risks related to the site.
- The team compiles a digest of the information obtained and prepares the condition assessment report.
A clear report is prepared for the client, summarising the main findings and most important repair needs with respect to structural, HVAC and electrical engineering, together with recommendations for further studies and measures, and an analysis of overall repair costs. The report sets out details and system descriptions of structures and systems according to the Talo 90 or Talo 2000 nomenclature. A proposal for repair measures, the time of repairs and a cost estimate is presented at subsystem level. Any health and safety findings are also highlighted.
