Building Survey Fund

The fund is designed to provide match funding to produce a survey to look at multiple aspects of a building and give directions on ways and means that could be taken to reduce costs, plan and make informed decisions about future steps. We have been working with the preferred contractor on a template on what this will look like and the information that will be returned and simple steps that could be taken from this.
These will look at the following areas:

  • Current Heating source and future best options
  • Insulation and value around fabric performance
  • Doors, Windows, and secondary glazing
  • Lighting
  • Air flow and draft reduction
  • Solar options and renewables
  • Small power and hot water
  • Over heating
  • Recommendations for the future

This will then return an action plan as well as recommendations for future works and a proposed timeline for these works.
