Camphill Village Trust supports adults with learning disabilities, providing supported living and day placement opportunities in nine communities throughout England. Most sites are in rural locations, but some are within busy town environments.
Rapleys Housing Consultancy was commissioned in August 2023 to complete a 100% external and internal stock condition survey of Camphill Village Trust’s diverse portfolio of 343 properties, including Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) to their residential properties. The survey was to determine the current condition and future maintenance requirements of the properties, informing a proactive property investment strategy.
Following comprehensive analysis of the portfolio, Rapleys commenced surveys in September 2022 and completed all site work in early November 2022. We worked in close partnership with Camphill Village Trust from the outset, engaging positively with staff and residents at each community enabling efficient completion of all survey work with the minimum of disruption to staff and residents.
The portfolio comprised many unusual and challenging buildings, allowing Rapleys to demonstrate our extensive range of surveying and Energy Assessor skills. All surveys were completed using Rapleys bespoke stock condition survey application, issuing our reports, survey data, photographs and Energy Performance Certificates to Camphill Village Trust in December 2022.
Rapleys undertook a presentation to our clients Investment Committee on completion of the project, providing an excellent platform and data set to inform our client’s Asset Management and Estates Strategy.
