Southwark Cathedral, London Bridge
Charities Not for Profit
Rapleys Building Consultancy was commissioned to complete Planned Preventative Maintenance reports for Southwark Cathedral’s property portfolio spanning across the London Borough of Southwark.
Most of the properties were Grade II Listed buildings occupied by stakeholders of The Cathedral. The majority of the portfolio is residential with others ranging from offices and Church buildings. Most of the Buildings are located within close distance from Southwark Cathedral, but have access constraints such as inaccessible high levels and roofs.
Rapleys was asked to assess the maintenance requirements of these properties over a 5-year period and produce maintenance schedules and survey reports.
From instruction, Rapleys mobilised within days to attend sites to undertake detailed inspections, taking into account the age of construction and Heritage Protection aspect.
Rapleys Building Consultancy was able to set budgets and a structured plan to maintain these buildings to prevent breakdowns and failures in the building fabric before the end of their expected design life.
We provided recommendation of appropriate specialists to further investigate specific defects such as structural and damp issues.
All inspections took place within five working days and reports were issued within five working days from inspection.
Our surveying team are fully trained drone operators enabling us to survey the roofs, rainwater goods and other high level elements of the buildings in a safe and non-intrusive manner.
