Stock condition surveys

Camphill Village Trust contacted CHIC regarding an urgent requirement for Stock Conditioning Surveys. The project requirements were reviewed and CHIC proposed solutions to the member. Camphill Village Trust decided to utilise the Consultancy Services Lot 5 Housing and Asset Management Framework and the Direct Award solution. A contract was put in place swiftly, supported by a rigorous business case, and mobilisation commenced.

Camphill Village Trust supports adults with learning disabilities, providing supported living and day placement opportunities in 10 communities throughout England. Most sites are in rural locations, but some are within busy town environments.

Rapleys Housing Consultancy were commissioned in August 2022 to complete a 100% external and internal stock condition survey of Camphill Village Trust’s diverse portfolio of 343 properties, including Energy Performance Certificates, for 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 a 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 in each community, enabling efficient completion of all survey work with minimum disruption to staff and residents.

The portfolio was comprised of many unusual and challenging buildings. Working with Rapleys, the project allowed us 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.
