Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM)

Prevention is better than cure!

Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) surveys are an essential tool that enable building owners/occupiers to proactively maintain, manage and improve their properties over a period of years.

PPM Reports prepared by Lea Hough’s building surveyors involve a detailed survey inspection of a property, along with a schedule with recommendations for the coming years, to provide a planned maintenance strategy. Our reports will identify repair projects and provide recommended timescales for undertaking repair works over coming years, and we also provide budget costs so that our clients are able to budget accordingly.

Lea Hough’s PPM survey reports enable clients to properly maintain and optimise the value of their property portfolios over a determined timeframe, and ensure that property assets are well looked after and kept in good repair.

Ensuring that properties are properly cared for with planned maintenance, avoids property owners suffering unexpected and costly reactive repair works.

We also prepare Stock Condition Surveys for clients with large property portfolios, such as Care Home Providers, Housing Associations and Commercial Landlords, and Quinquennial Surveys of Churches.

As well as considering disrepair and long-term maintenance requirements, we can also consider health and safety issues, matters of statutory compliance, thermal performance issues and suitability/fitness for purpose, etc. Where required we can also arrange for measured surveys, asbestos surveys and Energy Performance Certificates (EPC’s) to be undertaken simultaneously.
