Condition Surveys and Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM)

In times of uncertainty, the ability to plan is critical to effective asset management. Understanding the condition of these buildings is the vital first step in developing a strategic approach to planning maintenance, refurbishment or replacement.

At Watts, our teams of building surveyors have extensive experience of undertaking PPM Condition Surveys that enable our clients to plan for the short, medium and long term. Combining technical expertise across many building types with financial planning, enables accurate reports to be tailored to the specific needs of clients.

Our in-house building surveyors, building services engineers, project managers, cost consultants and trusted colleagues in other disciplines, offer additional support as required.

A PPM Condition Survey will identify greater opportunities for improvement than a reactive ongoing maintenance programme, helping reduce carbon emissions in line with government targets.


Adopting a planned approach to maintenance based on PPM Condition Surveys can:

  • Lead to savings of between 12-18% compared with reactive maintenance approach
  • Give you a strategic view of your estate assisting in decision making and budget planning
  • Allow you to understand the critical issues over a period of time and allow for these accordingly
  • Enable you to address wider policy issues such as carbon reduction and sustainability alongside existing maintenance
  • Keep maintenance costs consistent over a period of time, and avoid unexpected and unplanned costs arising
