Firm appointed survey partner for Phase 2 of the implementation of an Estates Asset Management System
Consultant Capita Symonds has been appointed by NHS Scotland as survey partners for Phase 2 of the implementation of an Estates Asset Management System for the NHS Estate in Scotland.
The firm will be providing surveying services on behalf of Health Facilities Scotland as well as the 22 health boards.
The work comprises the surveying or desktop appraisal of all the NHS properties in Scotland as part of the installation of the new system which features 3i Studio’s Estate Manager software.
Capita completed work on Phase 1 earlier this year which comprised the development of a Property Appraisal Manual for Estate Asset Management that has been rolled out across the NHS Scotland Health Boards, as well as the surveying of 820,300m2 of buildings and 474 blocks at 64 sites across nine health boards.
Phase 2 will see the consultant using a risk based methodology to carry out appraisals to identify the condition of the existing land and property assets; quantify the cost of backlog maintenance; and assess the risks associated with the condition, non compliance and suitability of the estate.
Capita’s Bill Morrison said: “Our appraisals will identify the works that are needed immediately as well as those that are required five years hence.”
